University of South Florida Consolidation Takes Effect July 1

Business

The University of South Florida will officially begin operating under a single accreditation for the Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Manatee campuses on Wednesday, July 1. Consolidating from three separately accredited institutions is a requirement of a Florida law passed in 2018 and amended in 2019. USF’s plan to consolidate received approval earlier this month from the executive council of the regional accrediting agency that oversees higher education in the southern United States, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Consolidation provides a wide range of new opportunities for students and faculty and ensures that every student has an opportunity to earn their degree from a Preeminent State Research University. “This is a historic day for the University of South Florida. We have an extraordinary opportunity to strengthen our position as one of the nation’s premier research universities and a leader in student success,” USF President Steven Currall said. “I am excited about our future as we work together to become a top-25 public university and position ourselves for future eligibility in the prestigious Association of American Universities.”
