SACSCOC Reaffirmation

Welcome to Winthrop University's SACSCOC Reaffirmation website. The purpose of the site is to provide information on the process of regional reaffirmation accreditation.

Winthrop University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, and specialist degrees. Contact the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Winthrop University. 

Winthrop received initial regional accreditation in 1923 and received reaffirmation of accreditation in December 2011. Accreditation by the Commission on Colleges 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.
