The Oklahoma State Legislature changed the name of the University in 1949, this time to Southwestern State College. Since that time, SWOSU has maintained accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools).
SWOSU proudly advertises that “SWOSU—a premiere regional university—offers 15 nationally-accredited academic programs, the most among Oklahoma’s regional universities.” For a complete listing of accredited programs, please see the Undergraduate Catalog and the Graduate Catalog.
