SACSCOC Institutional Accreditation

Tulane University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, masters, doctorate, and professional degrees. You may contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097 or call (404) 679-4500 with questions about the accreditation of Tulane University.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges is the recognized regional accrediting body in the eleven U.S. southern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia) and in Latin America for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master's, or doctoral degrees.

Reaffirmation of accreditation occurs every ten years, with an interim report due every five years. Tulane's accreditation was last reaffirmed by SACSCOC in 2011. As part of this process, Tulane submitted a compliance certification report demonstrating compliance with The Principles of Accreditation, as well as a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that addresses a focused topic or issue related to enhancing student learning. Tulane recently submitted its 2018 Fifth-year Interim Report (FYIR) in March 2018. For questions about the reaffirmation process, please contact the Office of Assessment and Institutional Research at or (504) 247-1231.
