"Just wanted to drop in quickly and say how impressed I am with SATS. ... with the clear communication, the set up of the courses, the proper introductions, the availability of individuals, the simple yet detailed information and the logical way in which all parts of SATS interacts with each other. Well Done." - Rian Joubert

SATS Financial Model

We would like to reassure our students and prospective students that the SATS financial model does not rely on donor funding; because students are required to pay up front for courses, we do not accumulate debt.

Evaluation of SATS postgraduate qualifications per USA equivalence

SATS transcripts were submitted to the following two organizations (which are two of the most frequently used and highly recommended USA evaluators) for evaluation per their USA equivalence:

  1. International Education Research Foundation, Inc. (www.ierf.org)
  2. American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers’ International Education Services (http://ies.aacrao.org)

ERF evaluated the SATS degrees as being equivalent to regionally accredited degrees in the USA. The AACRAO has evaluated SATS as follows:

  1. Per the MTh, the AACRAO evaluation states: The master’s degree from the South African Theological Seminary represents attainment of a level of education comparable to a master’s degree in theology from a regionally accredited university in the United States.
  2. Per the PhD, the AACRAO evaluation states: This degree represents attainment of a level of education comparable to a doctor of philosophy degree in theology from a regionally accredited university in the United States.
