Interestingly Indiana University states the following: Admission Criteria The Adult Education program employs the following criteria for admission: 1. A baccalaureate (bachelor’s) degree from a college or university holding full regional or national accreditation is required for admission to all graduate programs. Applicants with a bachelor’s degree from an institution holding only state accreditation may be granted conditional admission if their other application credentials are strong. Applicants in the last semester of a four-year undergraduate program may be granted interim admission until such time as a baccalaureate degree has been awarded which must be no later than the beginning of anticipated semester of matriculation.

I am unsure if this would apply to religious exempt degrees.
