SVCC granted reaccreditation

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has reaffirmed accreditation for Southside Virginia Community College. The SACSCOC is the regional body for the accreditation of degree- granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices among the diverse institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Latin America and other international sites approved by the SACSCOC Board of Trustees that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s or doctoral degrees.

SVCC was notified recently that the SACSCOC Board of Trustees reaffirmed accreditation June 14. The notification stated, “No additional report was requested. Your institution’s next reaffirmation will take place in 2028 unless otherwise notified.”

Dr. Al Roberts, SVCC President, said, “We are elated to receive the reaffirmation of accreditation for our college. The reaccreditation process is a huge undertaking and we have been successful only due to the diligence and committed effort of the entire college community working toward one goal, one mission.”
