The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s academic accreditation has been reaffirmed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

The SACSCOC Board of Trustees wrote in their confirmation letter that no additional report from UT was necessary, and that the university’s next reaffirmation will take place in 2025.

Key to the reaffirmation was designing a new Quality Enhancement Plan, a required component of the reaccreditation process. UT’s QEP, known as Experience Learning, seeks to increase experiential learning opportunities for all students.

“This success is due to the hard work of many of our faculty, staff, and students over the past three years,” said Mary Albrecht, associate vice provost for accreditation. “Without everyone’s contributions, the outcome of the review could very well have been different.”

Since 1897, UT Knoxville has been continuously accredited by SACSCOC to award baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees. The university was authorized in 1998 to offer distance education programs.
