Office of Assessment and Accreditation

We guide the academic community through the processes and procedures that help to ensure NC State’s continued excellence.

About the Office

The Office of Assessment and Accreditation ensures the quality of an NC State education for all undergraduate and graduate students. Our guidance of the assessment process creates accountability for the achievement of goals for all units at NC State, including learning outcomes for each academic program. 

Through our work, we’re building a systematic culture of assessment that demonstrates our academic strength and progress to accrediting agencies. The accreditation and assessment process, along with NC State’s continued academic growth, aligns with the university’s strategic goals and vision of excellence.


The Office of Assessment and Accreditation supports the facilitation of campuswide assessment and accreditation processes. OAA leads the academic and administrative outcomes assessment processes, and works collaboratively with university stakeholders to coordinate comprehensive external program review. OAA is responsible for leading data collection and reporting for accreditation as well as facilitating the substantive change process for the institution.

OAA guides these efforts in congruence with NC State’s expectations for continuous improvement and excellence as well as with standards for compliance with specialized accreditors and our institutional accrediting body, SACSCOC.


OAA will provide leadership and guidance in assessment and accreditation efforts to support innovative and strategic data-informed decision-making for institutional excellence.
