The University of Houston-Downtown is accredited by SACSCOC. 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,
UHD has started the reaffirmation process for our decennial review. For greater detail
on SACSCOC or this process please refer to the Commission's webpage.
