As the Chaplain for NationsUniversity I frequently receive requests regarding how to become a chaplain and whether the M.Div. degree from NationsUniversity meets the chaplaincy accrediting agency's criteria. My answer is that NationsUniversity is accredited by the Distance Learning Accrediting Commission (DEAC) which is approved and recognized by the government of the United States. Nominally, a M.Div. from NationsUniversity should be adequate for meeting the educational requirement of chaplaincy accrediting agencies and hiring institutions. However, each applicant must be responsible for verifying this himself or herself by contacting the accrediting agency to insure that this is indeed the case.
