SAC Offers Degrees and Certifications
San Antonio College (SAC) is a public community college that provides for and supports the education and lifelong learning needs of a multicultural community. In 1955, the college was accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). According to SACS, "(Accreditation) is a recognition that an institution or program has been evaluated and that it meets a set of standards of quality that are determined by the members of the association or agency granting the accreditation."
Since the Fall 2007, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB ) has awarded 11 programs at San Antonio College with an "Exemplary" ranking. The "Exemplary" ranking signifies that these programs have all exceeded the THECB's required standards of excellence.
Established in 1925, University Junior College boasted 232 students and 46 instructors. In January 1951, San Antonio College moved to its present location at 1300 San Pedro Avenue, just north of downtown. Enrollment in the fall 2010 semester exceeded 25,000 students, including those taking SAC courses at the Northeast Lakeview location.
