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 accreditation certificate is a symbol of high quality healthcare. It ensures that an organization adopts the best practices in healthcare and complies with nationally recognized standards.

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.
