Institutional accreditation is…

  • Important to the maintenance of the institution’s reputation
  • Important to the transferability of earned UT credit hours to other institutions
  • Essential for the acceptance of our students to graduate and professional schools elsewhere
  • Necessary for access to federal student financial aid and to some federal grants

Programmatic accreditation is…

  • a process that ensures an academic program meets rigorous educational quality standards
  • a credential that applies to a single degree program or school housed in an accredited institution

Institutional Effectiveness also maintains current files of programmatic accreditation approval letters.
