Welcome to James Madison University’s SACSCOC website.

This site is meant to serve our faculty, staff and students in fostering an understanding of JMU’s accreditation. We were first awarded this institutional report card in 1927, by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. However, every 10 years our university must be reaffirmed, with the most recent being in December 2013. This multiyear process requires an updated Quality Enhancement Plan and Compliance Certification. 

News & Updates

A Successful Visit

JMU hosted the SACSCOC peer review team for our on-site visit April 2-4, 2013. We are happy to report that they found zero compliance issues and offered no recommendations for either the Compliance Certification or Quality Enhancement Plan.

Reports Submitted

The Compliance Certification was submitted to SACSCOC in September 2012. It was a true team effort with participation of faculty and staff campus-wide.
