Institutional Accreditation

Clemson University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award the bachelor’s, master’s, education specialist and doctoral degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Clemson University. 

Inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to Clemson University and not to the Commission on Colleges.


The University is currently preparing for its 2012 decennial reaffirmation of accreditation review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).  In addition to institutional accreditation, academic programs may also be accredited through programmatic or "specialized" accrediting agencies.
