Accreditation

SACS-COC

The University of South Florida St. Petersburg is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award degrees at the baccalaureate and master’s levels. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg

AACSB

The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business in both business and accounting. AACSB International is the premier accrediting agency for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting, and as such is the most widely-recognized and sought-after endorsement of business schools. Less than one-third of U.S. business school programs and only 15 percent of business school programs worldwide meet the rigorous standards for AACSB accreditation.

NCATE

The College of Education is accredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards, through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Accreditation System. Formed in 2013, CAEP is the single specialized accreditor for educator preparation, and administers NCATE accreditation.

ACEJMC

The Department of Journalism and Media Studies (JMS) at USF St. Petersburg is one of 115 journalism programs nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications. ACEJMC is the national accrediting body for professional programs in journalism and mass communications. JMS, founded in 1991, was first accredited in both its undergraduate and graduate programs in 2004. Re-accreditation of both programs became official May 30, 2010 and will be in effect for seven years. About 25 percent of all journalism and mass communication programs in the United States are fully accredited. A far smaller percentage of programs are accredited at both undergraduate and master’s levels.
