Status: Full Accreditation


Tuskegee University has an amazing history. Founded in a one-room shack, 30 adults made up the first class and Dr. Booker T. Washington was their teacher. Founded by George Campbell and Lewis Adams in 1881, the school was authorized by House Bill 165 and gave teachers a $2,000 salary. Not long after its founding, it moved from the one-room shack to a 100 acre abandoned plantation that wasn’t too far away. It remains the location of present day, only it has grown from 30 students to over 3,000 on-campus, from one room to 70 buildings and from 100 acres to over 5,000.

The Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health, or CVMNAH is the only one of its kind, as it combines both animal and human health into one college. The Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine is fully accredited until 2014 by the COE (Counsel of Education) of the AVMA. Tuskegee University is accredited by the Commission on Education of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award students baccalaureate, Master’s, professional and doctoral degrees if they’ve met the requirements of their program.
