The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) accredits the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to award baccalaureate, post-baccalaureate certificates, graduate certificates, and masters, post-masters certificates, and doctorate degrees*. A total of 65 of the degree programs maintain discipline-specific professional accreditations. Information about our accreditation process can be found here.
*Note: Accreditation does not provide automatic acceptance by an institution of credit earned at another institution, nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Students should contact the receiving institution to help determine whether credits are transferable. Acceptance of credit or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the accredited status of an institution or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution. Those measures should include inquiries to institutions to which transfer might be desired or to prospective employers, as well as any private or governmental entity responsible for licensing or certifying graduates to work in the field for which the educational program is intended.
