There is a three-fold purpose for publishing the address and contact number of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. This is done to enable interested constituents:

  1. To learn about the accreditation status of Clayton State University;
  2. To file a third-party comment at the time of Clayton State University's decennial review; or
  3. To file a third-party complaint against Clayton State University for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirement of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

As indicated above, normal inquiries about Clayton State University (such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc.) should be directed to Clayton State University, not to the Commission's office.

Academic Planning and Assessment within Academic Affairs is administratively responsible for matters pertaining to Clayton State University’s accreditation, including the reaffirmation process.
