The College Leadership then requested and received approval from its regional accrediting agency, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Board of Trustees during its June 2013 meeting to continue as an accredited institution with Level I status, granting associate degrees. The consolidated College officially began doing business as Central Georgia Technical College July 1, 2013.
