Accreditations, Authorizations and Affiliations

Point University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Point University may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling 404-679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org). All other inquiries, such as for admission or academic information, should be made directly to the appropriate Point University office.

  • SACSCOC is recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
  • Point’s most recent decennial reaffirmation of accreditation by SACSCOC was approved in 2016.
  • SACSCOC standards state that it should be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support an institution’s significant non-compliance with a SACSCOC requirement or standard. All other inquiries about Point (admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc.) should be made directly to the appropriate Point office and not to SACSCOC.
  • For questions or comments regarding Point’s SACSCOC accreditation, contact accreditation@point.edu.

GaPSC Teacher Education Accreditation. The Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC, www.gapsc.com) governs teacher certification in the State of Georgia. Within Point’s College of Education, GaPSC has approved the Teacher Education Department and all educator programs that lead to state certification. Approved programs include the Elementary Education preparation program (preschool through fifth grades), the Middle Grades Education preparation program (fourth through eighth grades), the Secondary Education program in the areas of Biology, English, and History (sixth through twelfth grades), the Special Education General Curriculum program (grades PreK-12), and the English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement program.

CSWE Social Work Accreditation. Point University launched its Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) program in 2019-2020. The University has received approval from its SACSCOC regional accrediting body to offer this program. Point is also seeking professional accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education (https://www.cswe.org) with the aim of achieving initial accreditation by the time the first students graduate. Point has aligned its Social Work Major with CSWE’s nine Core Competencies and other standards, so that the program will prepare students for licensure as a social worker. In February 2020 the CSWE Commission on Accreditation granted candidacy status to Point’s B.S.W. program (see here). For updates on Point’s CSWE accreditation progress, contact Dr. Aisha Williams, BSW program coordinator and chair of the Department of Sociology & Social Work (Aisha.Williams@Point.edu).
