SACSCOC Continuous Compliance      




Lane College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award Associates and Baccalaureate degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 only for questions about the accreditation of Lane College. Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to Lane College and not to the Commission's office.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is the recognized regional accrediting body in the eleven U.S. Southern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) and in Latin America for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master's or doctoral degrees. To maintain accreditation with the Commission on Colleges, an institution must comply with the standards and requirements in The Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement and with the policies and procedures of the Commission on Colleges.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges conducts a comprehensive review of its institutions every ten years. The U.S. Department of Education requires accrediting agencies that it recognizes to monitor its institutions more often to ensure that institutions having access to federal funds continue to meet accreditation standards. To that end, the Commission has developed a Fifth-Year Interim Report. Lane College will submit a fifth-year interim report in 2018.

Lane College will be reviewed by SACSCOC for reaffirmation of accreditation in 2022.
