In addition to the University's accreditation through SACSCOC, many of the academic programs hold specialized or programmatic accreditation. Specialized accrediting agencies accredit only a program, department, or college and ensure the academic programs meet or exceed standards as determined by the profession or field of study. For some careers, especially those in the health sciences, earning a degree in a specially accredited program is mandatory for licensure, employment, and/or continuing education; for other fields, accreditation is a mark of higher quality education. A list of the accredited programs at Augusta University can be found here.
The accreditation staff collaborates with specially accredited academic programs to ensure compliance with respective accreditation requirements. Specifically, the office provides the following services:
