KILLEEN (June 25, 2012)--Texas A&M University-Central Texas is taking steps to achieve its own accreditation apart from Tarleton State University.
TAMUCT became a stand-alone university in 2009 as part of the Texas A&M System, however the university has to earn its own accreditation to complete the separation process.
The Compliance and Reports Committee of the Commission on Colleges, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, has most recently approved TAMUCT's application for separate accreditation which authorizes the school to complete a Compliance Certification Report, which includes an on-site review.
"The Compliance Certification Report is a thorough set of narratives and supporting documentation to show that A&M-Central Texas is in compliance with more than 80 accreditation standards…(the report) will be sent to a review team of peers who will visit the university's campus within the coming months," TAMUCT spokesperson Randy McCauley said.
Pending the findings, separate accreditation will then be awarded to the school.
"The acceptance of the application and authorization of the report symbolize a huge accomplishment for the university," McCauley said.
