The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education (COE) is the accreditor of veterinary medical programs.
As a new veterinary medical program, the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine was granted provisional accreditation by the AVMA COE in March 2021.
The school will remain on Provisional Accreditation until 2025, when the inaugural class is near graduation, at which time we anticipate receiving Full Accreditation status based on AVMA COE evaluation. We are accredited, albeit provisionally, and thus students graduating from a school or college with provisional accreditation are afforded all the privileges of students from fully accredited programs.
Texas Tech University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, master's, and doctorate degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Texas Tech University may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC's website (www.sacscoc.org).
