The University of West Georgia (UWG) is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, master, educational specialist and doctoral degrees. As a member of the Class of 2014 Track B institutions, UWG's accreditation was reaffirmed by SACSCOC on December 7, 2014. UWG's next reaffirmation will be in 2024. For questions regarding the accreditation of UWG by SACSCOC, please contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097 or via phone at (404) 679-4500.

Please note: The purpose of publishing the Commission’s contact information is to enable interested constituents to learn about the accreditation status of the institution, file a third-party comment at the time of the institution’s decennial review, or file a complaint against the institution for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirements. However, inquiries about UWG, such as admission requirements, financial aid, education programs, etc., should be addressed directly with UWG - not via the Commission’s office.
