Savannah State University
Fifth-Year Interim Report


Welcome to our Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) web page. Our Fifth Year Interim Report for Savannah State University (SSU) is the result of significant engagement and input from our students, faculty, staff, administrators and community stakeholders.

SACSCOC is one of only a few accrediting commissions that conducts a comprehensive review of its institutions every ten years. Most accrediting agencies conduct such reviews every 5 to 7 years.

The U.S. Department of Education requires accrediting agencies that it recognizes to monitor its institutions more often to ensure that institutions having access to federal funds continue to meet accreditation standards. To that end, the Commission has developed a Fifth-Year Interim Report.

As we continue to formally evaluate our policies and procedures through the SACS process, we remain committed to continually improving this historically significant institution, which has made a "seriously impressive impact" on the lives of students and alumni since 1890.
