Institutional Accreditation

Consistent with section 1008.47, Florida Statutes, each institution shall seek and take action to establish and maintain institutional accreditation with an agency or association recognized by the United States Department of Education.

Discipline-Specific Accreditation

Each institution is encouraged to seek and take action to maintain national or discipline-specific accreditation for its colleges, schools, and academic programs for which there are established standards for programmatic accreditation.

Discipline-specific accreditation is required for academic programs in which graduation from an accredited program is a prerequisite to achieving licensure or certification for professional practice.

Board of Governors’ Regulation 3.006, Accreditation, outlines requirements for institutional and discipline-specific accreditation.
