Louisiana State University

SACSCOC Accredited logo

LSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, masters and doctorate degrees. On December 7, 2014, the SACSCOC Board of Trustees voted to reaffirm LSU's accreditation for the next 10 years.

Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Louisiana State University and A&M College.

There is a three-fold purpose for publishing the address and contact number of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This is done to enable interested constituents:

  • To learn about the accreditation status of LSU
  • To file a third-party comment at the time of LSU's decennial review; or
  • To file a third-party complaint against LSU for alleged non-compliance with a standard requirement of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Direct all other inquiries about programs, services, or admission directly to LSU. Normal inquiries about LSU should be directed to LSU, not the commission's office. Contact information for university offices and departments can be found in the LSU A-Z listing on the university's homepage.
