    What does it mean when a seminary says that it doesn't make preachers nor accredit them? Is this the same for most colleges? I understand that only God makes preachers, but what does it mean by *we don't accredit them* Is this a reformed thing, or is this the norm in bible seminarys and colleges throughout the baptist genre.

    For a little deeper reply: Many Seminaries choose to not go for the accreditation process for a number of reasons. Among them, the accreditation process is lengthy and expensive, outsiders look at every aspect of the school, (including matters the Seminary may feel is private, such as names of financial donors, etc.) and they would then be subject to rules that they feel may not be scriptural, (such as hiring homosexuals.) The upside of becoming accredited is that (a)Students are eligible for Federal and State loans and grants, and (b)Courses taken at a Regionally Accredited school will generally transfer to another Regionally Accredited School. Separation of Church and State also seems to be an issue with many Seminaries and Bible Schools.
