Florida A & M University's History of Accreditation

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges. Florida A&M is designated as a Level VI institution, granting it the authority to award the Baccalaureate and Masters degrees, and the Doctoral degree in four (4) or more fields.

Having first received its accreditation in 1935, Florida A&M has the distinction of being the first Black institution to be accredited by SACS. Florida A&M University was last reaffirmed in 1998, with its next reaffirmation scheduled for early Spring 2009.

The University is committed to achieving accreditation in programs where accreditation is required for graduates to practice in their respective fields and encourages programs to obtain accreditation in programs where accreditation is not required, but offers competitive advance to graduates in such programs.
