Historically Black Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, North Carolina, has received authorization from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), to begin offering its academic programs in an online format.
After receiving approval from the accrediting agency, Saint Augustine’s University will begin by delivering its organizational management bachelor’s degree as a fully-online program, beginning this coming spring, through the department of extended studies.
“This authority is a game-changer for SAU,” says Michael Boone, dean of online, continuing education, graduate, and special programs. “This approval authority means that any currently approved University program can now be offered in a fully-online format.”
Wanda B. Coneal, interim provost and vice president of academic affairs at the university, added that “we are delighted to have this additional educational delivery option available and look forward to beginning this new frontier at our institution.”
