So, while not being a university, HCHC is still closer to the model that ozgeorge described than the rest of the North American seminaries.

It says that "upon the recommendation of the faculty of HELLENIC COLLEGE and the boar of trustees, have conferred upon X the degree of Bachelor of Arts"

Well, I can't say I've encountered a trustee who was a boar, but we did help eat a boar named after a particularly disliked university president at a faculty cookout once.

Well, the College degree will have the College name on it; the key was going to be if Holy Cross' has Hellenic College on it also (since Hellenic College is the name of the overarching corporate entity).

Indeed, it does, saying:

"HELLENIC COLLEGE
upon the recommendation of the Faculty of
HOLY CROSS
GREEK ORTHODOX SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY
and the board of trustees
have conferred on

The City of Cleveland
With High Distinction

The Degree of
Master of Divinity

with all the rights..."

So Hellenic College, as the overarching institution, confers the degrees, upon the recommendation of the faculty of each institution (College and Theological School).

Boy is that scary, and not just the Cleveland part ;) ;D

Funny story - Fr. Tom forgot to read the "High Distinction" part when I walked across stage.
Of course, I could barely hear it - everyone was cheering the fact that they'd finally be rid of me... ;)

Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
