North Carolina Wesleyan College will continue its accreditation status, receiving word earlier this week from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, or SACS.

The announcement means the college can continue to award baccalaureate degrees, following a rigorous self-inspection and peer review carried out over the past 18 months.

Wesleyan, which offers programs in Goldsboro, was first accredited in 1966. SACS is a regional accreditation organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. It accredits universities and colleges in 11 states and several Latin American countries.

Specific areas examined included the college's administrative structure, faculty qualifications, course work for degrees, learning resources, student support services, financial and physical resources and general education components.
