Is this school accredited?

However, students are not eligible for federal or state financial aid, student loans or grants. Upon the student's satisfactory completion of LSSM's requirements, and the display of Kingdom values set forth by LSSM, degrees will be issued. Additionally, for non-counseling or entrepeneural degrees, we honor each year as a unit, therefore students receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of each year they have satisfactorily completed.
