New MLIS Program


November 21, 2017

The Information and Library Science Department has received word from the ALA Committee on Accreditation that the Committee needs further information before they can grant the program candidacy status.  ILS has until February to gather and submit the required material.  This extends our timeframe by 6 months but still makes it possible for us to achieve accreditation in 2020.

The Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) has been granted Precandidacy status by the Committee on Accreditation of the American Library Association. Precandidacy status is an indication that SCSU’s MLIS program has voluntarily committed to participate in the ALA accreditation process and is actively seeking accreditation. Precandidacy does not indicate that the program is accredited nor does it guarantee eventual accreditation of the program by ALA.

TK20 Requirement

All students in the MLIS program are required to purchase TK20 accounts. For information on the TK20 Assessment System and how to purchase it, please go to the School of Education's website at
