Expanded curricular offerings and an increased number of degree programs created an appreciable rise in enrollment. It was granted university status in 1983.

Today, Slippery Rock University is a four-year, public, coeducational, comprehensive university offering a broad array of undergraduate and select graduate programs to more than 8,500 students. The University has earned full institutional accreditation through the Middle State Commission on Higher Learning and discipline specific accreditations.
