Tuskegee University’s Accreditation Warning Status Has Been Lifted

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges announced it has lifted the accreditation warning status placed on Tuskegee University two years ago.

In June 2015, the commission issued a warning to Tuskegee University regarding concerns for institutional effectiveness and financial stability. The commission’s recent decision to remove its previously issued warning validates the university’s efforts since that time to remedy those conditions.

John Page, chairman of the board of trustees of Tuskegee University, stated that the university “has made tremendous financial strides and enhanced its governance and oversight during the past two years. Working together, trustees, administrators, faculty and staff reduced the university’s cumulative debt by $20 million, increased its cumulative operating surplus by more than $17 million and increased enrollment by 3.5 percent.”
