Accreditation & Disclaimer



St. Catherine Theological Union is an ecumenical and interreligious non-profit educational foundation chartered in the State of Wisconsin. As an education facility that recognizes the accomplishments of individuals who may have previous ministerial experience or who may have already completed a fully qualified education in theology or divinity, we may offer certificate programs; continuing education, and grant degrees in areas of ministry.  SCTU does not hold accreditation from a Department of Education approved accrediting agency – at this time. The State of Wisconsin, in which St. Catherine Theological Union is established, exempts religious schools of higher education from licensing and accrediting requirements.

All courses, programs and activities described in our catalog is subject to cancellation or termination by the Institute at any time. The academic regulations and degree requirements are subject to revision to reflect changes in policies, occupational and licensure requirements, and other changes related to the quality of the program.

St. Catherine Theological hereby expressly disclaims any warranty or representation that any course or program completed by a student will result in the acquisition of any specific knowledge or skills by the student, or will enable the student to successfully complete or pass any specific examinations for any course, degree, or occupational license.

We do not, at this time, offer degrees or program certificates. We do offer certificates of completion for individual courses. In the event St. Catherine Theological begins offering honorary degrees without full accreditation, those achieving the honorary degrees MUST so indicate on all professional documents (i.e.: Hon. M.Div.) to comply with all states regulations on “False Academic Credentials”.
