Overview of Texas A&M's Reaffirmation of Accreditation Process
How often does SACSCOC reaffirm our accreditation?
Typically, an institution is reaffirmed every 10 years.
What is the timeline for this reaffirmation of accreditation?
Texas A&M’s compliance certification, a lengthy 500-page document, is due to SACSCOC in September, 2021. This document is reviewed by an off-site team of our peers to determine if the institution is in compliance with more than 30 requirements and standards that include over 97 different sections. Texas A&M receives the results of this report early in 2022 to address any shortcomings. Then, an on-site review team of our peers visits campus in spring 2022 to follow up and to hear a presentation of the institution’s new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).
Why is accreditation necessary for Texas A&M?
As we prepare for the on-site visit in spring 2022, there will be opportunities for campus members to ask questions, hear more about what SACSCOC expects of TAMU, and offer suggestions for improving our effectiveness as an institution of higher learning.
