Institutional Accreditation

We are proud to be an accredited community college here to help you meet your education and career goals.

Our accreditation to award associate degrees comes from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), and it’s an important part of who we are as a college.

Not only does accreditation help us provide you with financial aid options, it also means that since we are accredited to award associate degrees, your degree will automatically be recognized and accepted by all public or private four-year colleges and universities.
