Reaffirmation of Accreditation

The systematic assessment and review required by SACSCOC ensures that MSU continues to enhance educational quality and strive for improvements in undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Tracey N. Baham, Ph.D., serves as Mississippi State University's accreditation liaison. SACSCOC most recently reaffirmed our accreditation in 2015, and our next reaffirmation is scheduled for 2024. Prior to the reaffirmation, Mississippi State University must submit a Fifth-Year Interim report, which is an abbreviated reaffirmation document and an impact report in support of the Maroon & Write Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).
