Program Accreditations

Individual academic programs may hold specialized accredited by discipline-specific organizations when those programs meet established criteria and performance standards.  Programmatic accreditation is a reflection of a program’s integrity and alignment with recognized quality standards.  Periodic review and re-accreditation of individual programs occurs independently from, but contingent upon, the regional accreditation of the institution.  LSSU participates with the programmatic accreditation organizations listed below.
