Duke University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges (COC), the recognized regional accreditation authority for select geographic regions. As Duke University is one awarding body for the Duke-NUS joint degree, part of its accreditation reporting addresses relevant programme and process information about Duke-NUS. However, accreditation of Duke University itself cannot extend to Duke-NUS. Similarly, the Duke University School of Medicine is accredited by The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the accrediting authority for programmes leading to the MD degree in the United States and Canada only. This accreditation cannot apply to Duke-NUS.
