The Texas State Student Health Center has chosen to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, as well as a thorough review by AAAHC expert surveyors, who themselves have extensive experience in healthcare.
The Texas State Student Health Center has been accredited by AAAHC since 2003. A very small percentage of college health centers in the United States are accredited. In Texas, only seven college health centers are accredited by AAAHC: Baylor University, Sam Houston State University, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M University, Texas State University, University of Texas at Austin and University of Texas-Pan American. The Texas Tech University Student Health Center is accredited by the Joint Commission.
