BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU's accreditation has been renewed for another decade.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges announced Tuesday the final outcome of its two-year re-accreditation review, which is required every 10 years for schools to continue to award degrees.

The review process included at least two trips to LSU, which resulted in several recommendations from SACS. In Nov. 2012, the Georgia-based regional accrediting authority raised concerns over whether LSU's merger of its president and chancellor positions was in full compliance with its accreditation.

The Advocate reports ( ) LSU in September submitted its response with corrective measures to SACS for final review.

The process on campus was led by a committee of faculty, staff, students and administrators.
