About Educational Quality
at The Master’s University and Seminary
It is the commitment of The Master’s University and Seminary (TMUS) to offer challenging academic degree programs that seek to ensure student mastery of the skills and knowledge which are critical to success in one’s chosen profession, as well as preparation for further education at the graduate level. At the same time the university and Seminary make it a priority to provide support systems to maximize the potential for students to complete their degree work in a timely manner.

Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory Summary Reports
The Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) is a 100+ item national survey which asks students to use two 7-step scales to rate the relative importance and their relative satisfaction with virtually every aspect of college life. The Master's University administered the SSI annually from 1997 to 2008 during the month of November. Beginning in 2010, the schedule was shifted to administer the survey to its students during the fall semester of every even-numbered years.
The summaries of results from TMU's administration of the SSI can be accessed via the links below:
