About

History

In 1841, equipped with an enduring vision (and courage), Father Edward Sorin set sail from France to the new world to establish Notre Dame and St. Edward’s universities. For more than 130 years, we’ve carried his passion for educating all who seek to realize their full potential, regardless of social standing, spiritual path or ability to pay. And along the way, we’ve changed a lot, too.

Education

Whether you're a new freshman, transfer, graduate or adult student, you will find a passion for academic challenge, life-changing knowledge, global awareness and social justice among the students and faculty at St. Edward's University. 

Accreditation

St. Edward’s University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

SACSCOC is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices among diverse institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Latin America and other international sites approved by the commission that award associate, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees.
