Memberships and Accreditations Among Other Memberships and Accreditations
Program-related Memberships and Accreditations

Overview

Evidence of TCU's educational standards lies in its accreditations and memberships.

Throughout the higher education system, numerous examining bodies-boards, agencies, commissions-attest annually the credibility of a university's education program. These bodies review and assess the worthwhileness of an institution's offerings.

TCU is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

Phi Beta Kappa, the prestigious academic society in the liberal arts, approved TCU for membership in 1970. TCU is also approved for a chapter of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society of North America.
