Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental peer review process by member of the higher education community. The purpose of the accreditation process is to ensure academic quality and accountability, and to encourage continuous improvement among educational institutions.
The Texas A&M Health Science Center is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters, doctoral, and professional degrees. SACS can be contacted by writing to 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia, 30033-4097 or by calling (404) 697-4501 for questions regarding the accreditation of the Health Science Center.
Note: The Commission should only be contacted 1) to learn about the institution's accreditation status, 2) to file a third-party comment at the time of the institution's accreditation review, or 3) to file a complaint against the institution for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirement. All normal inquiries about admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc. should be addressed directly to the Health Science Center and not the Commission's office.
