Accreditation and approvals
Southern States University was accredited in August 2010 by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, an accreditor which is no longer recognized by the United States Department of Education. SSU has maintained "Institutional Approval" status from the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) since the University's acquisition by Tepper Technologies in 2006, certifying that it has continued to meet the state's statutory requirements for a private postsecondary institution.
