The Asia Theological Association (ATA), a member of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education of the World Evangelical Alliance, accredits all SAIACS degrees.
In 1997, SAIACS was recognized by the University of Mysore, a premier Indian university in Karnataka, as a research centre for study leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree of the University of Mysore, Karnataka (No. CDC/F-153/96-97). On 8 June 2011, the University of Mysore recognized SAIACS as a centre for specialized studies to offer an MA in Theology. The University of Mysore has indicated (No. PMEB/13 – South/2010 – 11/13) that the same Memorandum of Understanding meant for the MA in Theology will also hold good for the MPhil programme launched in June 2012 (No. PMEB/13 – South/2010 – 11/199).
