Point University Announces SACSCOC Accreditation Reaffirmation

Point UniversityPoint University is pleased to announce reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The reaffirmation will cover Point’s accreditation for the next 10 years.

The approval was announced after the accrediting body’s board of trustees meeting in June.

Following the decennial review in the fall of 2015, the Commission on Colleges reached its reaffirmation decision after visiting Point site locations and meeting with educators and staff members to review compliance with the principals of accreditation.

“I am proud of our leadership team and staff who worked hard to complete our reaffirmation process. Accreditation is a vital part of an academic institution. Dr. Dennis Glenn organized and led our process, and his work along with others has returned an excellent result,” said President Dean Collins.

As a part of the reaffirmation process, Point University developed a quality enhancement plan (QEP) aimed at improving an aspect of education for students. Write Away, Point’s QEP, focuses on equipping students to think and write effectively across all disciplines and programs. Rubrics and consistent evaluation and feedback are used to improve student writing to position them for academic and future professional success.

Point University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, and masters degrees.
