Georgia Regents University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC) toward one-year and advanced certificates and degrees at the associate, bachelor's, master's, specialist's, first professional, and doctoral levels. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or phone at 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of GRU.  All eligible academic programs maintain accreditation by the appropriate specialized accrediting bodies. The purpose of publishing the commission's contact information is to enable interested parties 1) to learn about the accreditation status, 2) to file a third-party comment at the time of the institution's review, or 3) to file a complaint against the institution for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirement. Normal inquiries about GRU, such as admission requirements, financial aid, etc., should be addressed directly to the Georgia Regents University and not to the commission.
