The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) gave final approval on December 6, 2016 for the merger of the University of North Texas at Dallas and the University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law. The approval follows an on-site visit by a team of SACSCOC evaluators in spring 2016.

Included in the approval is authority for UNT Dallas to apply for other doctoral programs in addition to the College of Law’s J.D. degree.
