TUSKEGEE, Ala. (December 6, 2016) --Tuskegee University received approval of its substantive change proposal for online degree programs by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The approval came this week in Atlanta, Georgia, as SACSCOC began its annual meeting.
The SACSCOC is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the South. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices among the diverse institutions in 11 southern states. This approval allows the University to continue fully inaugurating 21st century higher education through online degrees.
"Tuskegee University is grateful to SACSCOC in approving the substantive change for online degree programs-a signal achievement for fully inaugurating a 21st Century institution of teaching and learning!” said President Brian Johnson. “I am grateful for faculty and staff members who have ensured that this vision has become reality. Individuals world-wide will now be able to experience the Tuskegee Tradition and the Tuskegee Trajectory."
The University’s current online degree offerings include a Master of Science in Environmental Science and a Master of Science in Environmental Management.
