ATS Distance Learning Approval
On June 2, 2020 the ATS Board of Commissioners met and accepted the report, confirming that our ART pathway conforms to the appropriate policies and procedures.
In a separate action on the same day, ATS has approved our petition to offer comprehensive distance education in a given program. With this approval, the mode of delivery we use for the ART pathway is also approved by ATS.
Further, the approval of this delivery method, can then be applied to any degree program. Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology may therefore also offer any other course content using a distance delivery method.
