The office ensures integration of accreditation and program review standards into the University’s overall continuous improvement process and collaborates with programs and units to identify, develop, and document appropriate data and information that provides evidence of compliance with accreditation.
Academic Program Accreditation
In addition to the University’s accreditation through SACSCOC, many of the academic programs hold specialized or programmatic accreditation. Specialized accrediting agencies accredit only a program, department, or college and ensure the academic programs meet or exceed standards as determined by the profession or field of study. For some careers, especially those in the health sciences, earning a degree in a specially accredited program is mandatory for licensure, employment, and/or continuing education; for other fields, accreditation is a mark of higher quality education.
