I have heard similar stories about University of Phoenix. These have ranged from hiring people blackballing them to being told by a University they would take no credits at the undergraduate level much less accept the degree into their graduate programs. It has damaged it's brand (it is a check the box degree). Schools like Andersonville that are exempt are in another category. Denominational and related entities have their own set of criteria. If they assess Andersonville as rigorous enough to qualify and of the correct theological understanding, it may be more suitable in certain circles than a liberal well accredited seminary because it is fundamentalist and dispensational. Don't try applying with a PhD from Georgetown or Catholic University of America.
