Brewton-Parker's National Accreditation
MOUNT VERNON - Brewton-Parker College's national academic accreditation was reaffirmed without condition for 10 years by the Southern Association's Commission on Colleges during the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' recent meeting in Nashville, Tenn.
"For the past five years, members of our faculty, staff, administration and trustees have worked diligently to assure the college's continued accreditation," said Dr. David Smith, Brewton-Parker's president.
"Our efforts have been rewarded with the commission's decision. I appreciate each of our staff and faculty for their hard work and many contributions to our institutional goals. This is an acknowledgement of their professionalism and commitment to overcome tremendous challenges."
The Southern Association accredits colleges and schools from the Atlantic Ocean west to New Mexico and from Kentucky to South America. About 300 schools were considered for reaffirmation at the Nashville meeting.
Accreditation is required for students to transfer credits or receive federal and state financial assistance.
