Accreditations provide evidence of TCU's high educational standards. Throughout the higher education system, numerous examining bodies—boards, agencies and 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 (1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia, 30033-4097; 404.679.4501) to award bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

The institution's membership in numerous academic societies provides further evidence of high standards. Of particular note are Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi. 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.
