Richmont Graduate University has received 10-year institutional reaccreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools(SACSCOC). The vote to reaffirm Richmont was held at the SACSCOC annual meeting this past week in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Accreditation by SACSCOC signifies that the institution (1) has a mission appropriate to higher education, (2) has resources, programs, and services sufficient to accomplish and sustain that mission, and (3) maintains clearly specified educational objectives that are consistent with its mission and appropriate to the degrees it offers and that indicate whether it is successful in achieving its stated objectives.1
Regional accreditation by SACSCOC is considered the gold standard for higher education institutions and signifies academic and administrative excellence. The Richmont faculty and staff have worked diligently to achieve this important milestone and are committed to a process of continual assessment and improvement.
