Statement of Educational Effectiveness

How Our Graduates Rate Us and
How They Progress Through Their Program

To ensure that its educational programs have their intended impact for the good of the church and world, United engages in regular practices of assessing the effectiveness of its programs.

One of the ways we do this is to ask our graduating students how they think we did during their time with us. The instrument we use for this, the ATS Graduating Student Questionnaire, is used by 120-140 accredited seminaries of all types, sizes and denominations across the United States and Canada. It asks graduates to rate a wide variety of aspects of the education they received and their experience of the school using a scale from 1 (worst) to 5 (best).

Here you can find a selection of key scores for United’s academic programs. We hope this helps you make your own assessment of the value of a United education.
