West Texas A&M University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), a regional agency recognized by the United States Department of Education.

The College of Business is accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate level by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which is the highest accrediting body for business colleges in the world. Less than five percent of business programs in the world achieve this standard of excellence. This means that our faculty, curriculum, and all other educational resources are thoroughly and professionally evaluated by an independent board of educators and have been found to be of exceptional quality.
