Welcome to Saint Leo University

The oldest Catholic higher education institute in Florida, we have been serving online learners since the 1990s.

About Us

Saint Leo University is a private, regionally accredited liberal arts university outside Tampa, FL. Founded in 1889, we now enroll nearly 16,000 students across the world.

We are proud to offer the same highly regarded degree programs to our online learners as we offer at our traditional Florida campus and 17 continuing education centers.

University Accreditation

Regional accreditation is the highest form of accreditation a college or university can obtain, and—unlike national accreditation—is recognized throughout the U.S.

Saint Leo University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award the associate, bachelor’s, master’s, specialist, and doctoral degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call (404) 679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Saint Leo University.

Like other reputable universities, we recognize transfer credit from only regionally accredited degree-granting institutions—rather than nationally accredited schools—as listed in the American Council on Education's Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education.
