“FTSOC is now a religious educational institution operating in the State of Maryland pursuant to an exemption granted by the Maryland Higher Education Commission, without a Certificate of Approval from the Commission, as specified in the Code of Maryland Regulations 13B.02.04.  Under this exemption granted July 21, 2021, Faith Theological Seminary of Catonsville can offer religious education and the granting of degrees.

 "It is the intention of the institution to acquire both the Maryland state Certificate of Approval and also Accreditation Status with a Christian accrediting agency that is recognized by the US Dept of Education."  Both goals will take time and much work, but we are committed to the process. Progress updates will be made public by the Seminary in due course.”
