Why Be Accredited?

UTSA must be accredited in order to award degrees with all of the credentials of a comprehensive four-year institution. In order to be accredited, we must undergo a thorough review every ten years. In the interim, we must also submit a five-year review. Our last ten-year review occurred in 2010, and now we are in the process of submitting our fifth year interim report.

Our regional accreditation agency is the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC). Accreditation is basically a self-regulated process, and we are evaluated by our peers through the process that SACS-COC oversees.
