Accreditors give final approval of Georgia State, Georgia Perimeter plan

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the regional accreditation body, gave its approval to the consolidation plans of Georgia State University and Georgia Perimeter College last month. University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby announced the consolidation plans in January 2015, to create the new, combined institution.

SACSCOC’s approval represents the final step needed for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia to review and grant authorization for the consolidated institution to officially operate as the new Georgia State University.
