  1. California Governor Schwarzenegger signed this week the Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009. You can read the legislative analysis and the full text here: This bill has some religious content. Article 4. Exemptions . . (e) (1) An institution owned, controlled, and operated and maintained by a religious organization lawfully operating as a nonprofit religious corporation pursuant to Part 4 (commencing with Section 9110) of Division 2 of Title 1 of the Corporations Code, that meets all of the following requirements: (A) The instruction is limited to the principles of that religious organization, or to courses offered pursuant to Section 2789 of Business and Professions Code. (B) The diploma or degree is limited to evidence of completion of that education. (2) An institution operating under this subdivision shall offer degrees and diplomas only in the beliefs and practices of the church, religious denomination, or religious organization. (3) An institution operating under this subdivision shall not award degrees in any area of physical science. (4) Any degree or diploma granted under this subdivision shall contain on its face, in the written description of the title of the degree being conferred, a reference to the theological or religious aspect of the degree's subject area. (5) A degree awarded under this subdivision shall reflect the nature of the degree title, such as "associate of religious studies," "bachelor of religious studies," "master of divinity," or "doctor of divinity."
  2. An honorary degree is conferred to someone who has waived the study requirements.
  3. Going back to the original question of this thread, I found the original court document stating ULC has the rights to grant Honorary D.D.
  4. Why an Honorary Doctor of Divinity requires a payment of $20?
  5. What State authority can confirm ULC’s degree granting status? Where can I enquiry on ULC's degree granting status?
