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 Commission's office.
