If one is a graduate of certain Schools of Preaching (there are more), not just MSOP, then certain accredited colleges and university associated with the Church of Christ are given one full year of credits toward their Bachelors degree in Bible. I know that MSOP is one of those schools that this is extended too. This is true for graduates of MSOP at Freed-Hardeman University, which I attended (1988-1992, and the graduate school in 1993 & 1994). Although I never attended MSOP I know to be fact as several of my classmates at Freed-Hardeman and attended MSOP and received such credits toward their degree.
It does declare itself a college, which I have taken the liberty of editing out. I am trying to find out its accreditation because it does accept VA Benifits for Veterans attending.(My mistake -- sorry) --Hawk 05:15, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Addendum to above statement - According to the 2006-2007 Freed-Hardeman University Catalog, on on page 153 it states that students who are graduates of a School of Preaching can recieve up to 16 credit hours toward their degree. The student must show mastery in that the mastery of the is compatable to courses taught at FHU. (My daughter received a catalog and I have been referencing it for article I have written in the Wikipedia.
I also downloaded the 2006 MSOP Catalog which states that they offers a third year program that can be counted toward college credits through Regions University, formerly Southern Christian College. This information is found on their Website.
I also have come to the conclusion that they have mistakenly refered to themselves as a 'college' because MSOP's course and credit hours are structured very much like a junior college.
