The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees.

The Haslam College of Business was first accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 1941, becoming the 53rd school to earn this distinguished accreditation. In 2017, UT went through the five-year maintenance of accreditation process for both the college and accounting, receiving continued accreditation of both until 2022.
