Shaw University is accredited by the Commission on
Colleges (COC) of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the
regional accrediting organization for eleven states in the southeastern United
States, including North Carolina. Reaffirmation of accreditation is on a ten
year schedule, and the University was last reaccredited in 2002.
Our Quality Enhancement Plan was submitted in February
2013 and on March 26-28, 2013, the University participated in a reaccreditation
visit. On December 9, 2013, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmed the University's accreditation
during its annual meeting in Atlanta, GA.
The accreditation was reaffirmed for 10 years.
Going through the reaffirmation process has
provided us with the opportunity to examine our history, enhance what we are
doing presently, and embrace a future full of hopes and dreams, innovations and
breakthroughs. We are now preparing for our fifth-year report that is due in
2017. Thank you for taking the time to
