Does the JTS still accept credits from the Lakewood Yeshiva?

[R. Saul Lieberman] saw to it that JTS was listed as an accredited institution accepting credits from the Beth Medrash Govoha of Lakewood, New Jersey (pursuant to the request of the Immigration and Naturalization Service); the dean of that institution, Rabbi Aharon Kotler, was an older colleague of Lieberman's from Slobodka.360

360 Rabbi M. Levine, letter to Lieberman, Jan. 25, 1954.
