Regionally Accredited Institutions

To be considered for degree status, university graduate admissions standards require applicants to hold a baccalaureate degree from a "regionally accredited institution of higher education, or international equivalent." 

Accreditation indicates an institution follows shared values and practices and meets established standards for educational quality. Mason's accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) lists integrity, student learning, self-regulation, peer review, accountability, transparency and continuous quality improvement as core values.
