Accreditation at Eastern Florida

Eastern Florida State College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate and associate degrees. Eastern Florida State College also may offer credentials such as certificates and diplomas at approved degree levels.

2024 Reaffirmation Process Resources

Eastern Florida is currently going through reaffirmation of institutional accreditation through SACSCOC. During this three-year process EFSC developed a comprehensive self-study compliance report and a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focused on improving student success.

The reaffirmation process includes an off-site committee review of the compliance report and an on-site committee visit to evaluate our processes and provide feedback for the next QEP, Rocket to Success: Taking Online Learning to New Heights.

Faculty and Staff: View information on how to access the internal Reaffirmation Report inside the myEFSC Portal plus details on key sections to review and other resources as you prepare for the upcoming Oct. 9-12 site visit.

The accreditation process is intended to assure educational quality and institutional effectiveness. EFSC anticipates full reaffirmation in summer of 2024.
