Brenau University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Our last 10 year review was affirmed in 2011. On Dec. 6, 2011 SACS reaffirmed Brenau University’s 10-year accreditation as a Level V doctoral degree-granting institution.

Various programs within the institution are also accredited. such as the accreditation of the Bachelor of Science of Nursing by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, the accreditation of the Master of Science of Nursing by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, the accreditation of the Occupational Therapy program by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education, and the accreditation of the Interior Design Program by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation. These are just a few of our accredited programs. As you can see, some accreditors are interested in undergraduate education, some in graduate education, and others in both.

Occasionally a state agency may also exercise oversight. For example, Brenau's Bachelor of Science of Nursing is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing, but the Georgia Board does not exercise oversight of graduate programs in Nursing.
