Institutional Accreditations

We are proud to be an accredited community-based college here to help you meet your education and career goals.

Our accreditation comes from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), and it’s an important part of who we are as a college.

Not only does accreditation help us receive federal funding, it also means that since we are accredited to award associate degrees, your degree will automatically be recognized and accepted by all public or private four-year colleges and universities.

Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Ashland Community and Technical College.

Note: The Commission is to be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support an institution's significant non-compliance with a requirement or standard.
