TSC’s high quality and commitment to student success earns 10-year reaccreditation

Texas Southmost College (TSC) was awarded reaffirmation of accreditation by its regional accrediting agency earlier this month, certifying that the college is achieving its mission of transforming communities through innovative learning opportunities. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmed TSC’s accreditation through 2030, at their meeting on Sept. 3, 2020.

“Accreditation from SACSCOC is the most important designation TSC can achieve for our community,” said TSC President Jesús Roberto Rodríguez. “Not only does it attest to the high quality of programs and services we offer, regional accreditation is required by the Department of Education to receive federal funding—including financial aid for students.”
