Membership Introduction

The SAIS-SACS dual accreditation program began in 2005, and since then SAIS has experienced an increasing demand for membership and accreditation. In order to maintain the quality and meaning of the SAIS “brand” of accreditation, the organization’s membership criteria has been updated. The membership criteria in place for SAIS today is much different than in the past. Schools that joined the organization under the old criteria were grandfathered. However, all member schools (even those that were grandfathered) are encouraged to meet the current criteria and seek accreditation, both of which show signs of a quality school. If you have any questions about the current membership criteria, please contact Damian Kavanagh at (404) 918-8850 or
