On behalf of His Excellency the Rector of the University, the Vice Rector for Planning and Development, Prof. Ali bin Mohammed Masmali, signed the renewal  Institutional Academic Accreditation Contract for the University in 2024 with the Education and Training Evaluation Commission. The contract will be signed by Prof. Mohammed bin Saleh Bashmakh, the Executive Director of the National Center for Academic Accreditation and Evaluation, representing the Commission. This signing ceremony will take place on Tuesday, 25th Rabi Al-Awwal 1445 H, corresponding to October 10th, 2023.

It is worth noting that King Saud University was the first Saudi university to receive institutional academic accreditation from the Education and Training Evaluation Commission in 2010, for a period of seven years. The first institutional academic accreditation for the University was renewed in 2017 until 2024. The University is  implementing a work plan to meet the required standards for the second renewal of institutional academic accreditation, scheduled for 2024.

The institutional academic accreditation of the University brings several benefits, including:

- It serves as an important indicator of the University's ongoing developmental progress based on sound planning.

- It recognizes that the University is on the right path and heading in the right direction.

- It is a key component of a modern academic institution, confirming the level and quality of performance.

- It enhances the University's institutional reputation locally and internationally.

- It promotes the achievement of the highest quality standards in the University's educational, research, and community processes.

- It reinforces the University's efforts to continue its journey towards global leadership and excellence in building a knowledge society, in line with its approved strategic plan.

The University, represented by the Deanship of Development and Quality, has developed a specific action plan in collaboration with all University units to obtain the second renewal of institutional academic accreditation in 2024.  His Excellency the University Rector was also keen to lead a workshop to launch the work of the committees and work teams in the process of renewing the second institutional academic accreditation for the University in 2024.
