Georgia Southern University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, masters, specialists and doctorate degrees. Contact the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 (http://www.sacscoc.org) for questions about the accreditation of Georgia Southern University.

Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc. should be addressed directly to the institution and not to the SACSCOC office. The Commission should be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support an institution’s significant non-compliance with a SACSCOC accreditation requirement or standard.
