Specialized Accreditation

OSPIE supports specialized accreditation of the institution’s degree programs. Department Chairs and Deans work with the Vice Provost for OSPIE from the initial stages of planning including identification of resources. All accreditation documents are submitted first to OSPIE for approval before off-campus submission, and OSPIE needs at least ten business days to approve compliance reports (self-study).

The following is a list, by College/School, of specialized program accreditation, the name of the accreditor, the date of accreditation with the letter, and the date for the next accreditation visit. For a list of all of A&T's specialized accreditors visit: http://www.ncat.edu/about/who-is-at/accreditations-certifications.html
