Accrediting Agencies Affiliated with UT Austin

Requests to add/withdraw professional accredited status should receive institutional-level consideration since they can impact students and require input and/or action at the undergraduate and graduate levels. For this reason, the associate vice provost for Strategic Academic Initiatives should be included in the chain of authority for review/notification when there is a change in a program’s accreditation status.

To support review, please complete the following discipline-specific information when a change in accreditation status is requested and send to

  1. Do the affected degrees lead to professional licensure?  If so, will a loss of accreditation status negatively impact program graduates?
  2. Are peer/aspirational programs accredited?  If so, will a loss of accreditation status impact UT Austin’s competitiveness?
  3. How will students be informed?
