Accreditation affirmed for Texas Tech University at Costa Rica


The university's first international campus is now included in the accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

Texas Tech University at Costa Rica (TTU-CR), the institution's first international campus, has received approval to be included in the university's accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

“Texas Tech University's presence in a diverse and industry-rich environment in Costa Rica will provide unique opportunities for our students and faculty,” said Lawrence Schovanec, Texas Tech president. “Approval by SACSCOC is an important and necessary step to continue expanding the university's presence on a global scale.”

SACSCOC is the regional accreditation body for degree-granting higher education institutions in 11 states in the U.S., and in Latin America and other approved international sites that award associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

“We are very excited to inaugurate our first degree-awarding international campus in Costa Rica,” said Sukant Misra, associate vice provost for international programs in the Office of International Affairs (OIA). “We are committed to making U.S.-quality university offerings available to students in their own cultural and socio-economic environment and helping establish an institution that will play a key role in Costa Rica's national development.”
