Mercer University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral degrees.


The American Psychological Association (APA) does not currently accredit the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) program at Mercer University. Although the program is actively seeking APA accreditation, non-accreditation status at the time of graduation may impact licensure eligibility in the state in which the student intends to practice. The program is designed to meet Georgia state licensure laws. Each student is encouraged to become knowledgeable about licensure requirements of the state in which they intend to practice.


Questions related to the program’s accreditation status should be directed to the American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation:
