Specialized Accreditation

Stanislaus State Values Accreditation

Specialized, professional, or programmatic accreditation is a type of accreditation status that is designated for specialized departments, programs, schools, or colleges within a college or university that have already been awarded institutional accreditation.  It focuses on particular aspects of the department, program, school, or college's specified academic field of study. 

Several individual programs at Stanislaus State have achieved and maintained accreditation by professional accrediting bodies:

These programs value the process, both the self-examination as well as the peer review, and the University dedicates resources to help ensure individual programs are successful in sustaining the activities necessary to maintain their accreditation.
