Northwind Seminary Degree Transfers are governed by Articulation Agreements.
Articulation Agreements are arrangements between institutions that agree in advance, via Memorandum of Understanding to accept each other’s credits in the transfer of specific ministry credentials. In these cases, students may be simultaneously enrolled in multiple institutions. Each institution teaches its own curriculum and courses; there is no outsourcing involved.
Northwind Theological Seminary's Articulation Agreements are based on the standards of the Higher Learning Commission Association which is the regional accrediting body recognized by the US Department of Education that accredits colleges and universities in a 19-state region of the United States.
Northwind Theological Seminary's Articulation Agreements allow dually-enrolled students to take cross-listed courses meeting the requirements of both Sarasota Academy and Northwind Theological Seminary.
Institutions may decide whether to enter into articulation arrangements with other institutions regardless of the other institution’s accredited status. However, institutions should make the public aware of all such arrangements (e.g. by listing such arrangements on the website, providing more details in program catalogs and ensuring clarity in the transcript produced as a result of such arrangements).
