NC State and some individual programs must undergo regular accreditation reviews. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is the accrediting body for degree-granting institutions in the Southeast region of the country. NC State’s accreditation by SACSCOC was reaffirmed last in 2014. Various nationally recognized accrediting organizations oversee program accreditation in a number of disciplinary areas.
