Institutional Accreditation

Message from the Director of Assessment and Accreditation

We are pleased to announce that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has reaffirmed UNCG’s accreditation unconditionally for 10 years. SACSCOC is the main organization that accredits schools and colleges in the Southern United States.

UNCG’s reaccreditation is validation of our adherence to high standards for academic excellence. Of particular note is that SACSCOC reaffirmed our accreditation with no required follow-ups or conditions. The accreditation process is exceptionally important in that it helps our university maintain high academic standards, foster public confidence in our academic value and support the critical function of peer review within higher education, and it makes UNCG eligible for certain grants and federal aid programs. It helps ensure that UNCG fulfills its mission and gives us the chance to gauge our performance and identify areas for improvement.

To have our accreditation reaffirmed, our university documented our compliance with the SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation, which consist of federal requirements, comprehensive standards, and core requirements.

Many people deserve recognition for their contribution to UNCG's successful reaffirmation of accreditation. The Office of Assessment and Accreditation gratefully acknowledges all individuals who worked tirelessly to help UNCG achieve this success.
