Note- I posted this in the distance learning section as it primarily relates to distance learning seminaries. I know unaccredited schools get a very bad rap due to the large amounts of diploma mills in those waters. As for unaccredited seminaries, I cannot say I am against those type of schools per say. Depending on where you intend on getting ordained unaccredited schools are the best choice. They should probably avoid awarding doctoral degrees if they are not on par with accredited doctoral degrees. I would be okay with a D.Div being awarded as that certificate holds no academic value, considering that the D.Div is an honorary degree. Just personal opinion.
