Tulane University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). 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 and SACSCOC accepted Tulane’s Fifth-Year Interim Report with no recommendations. Tulane’s decennial reaffirmation of accreditation process is taking place from Fall 2021 through December 2022.
Tulane’s decennial reaffirmation is a university-wide effort and undertaking. To advise the Provost and the university community and to support the regional accreditation process, Tulane has a Compliance Certification Committee with representation from across the university.
