Review by Commission on Colleges (December)

In December 2016, the SACSCOC will conduct its final review of our QEP and compliance documents and will issue its ruling on our reaffirmation. Then we'll begin implementing our QEP, and before we know it will be time to prepare the Fifth-Year Interim Report. Documenting and assessing what we do along the way keeps us prepared to demonstrate that we are practicing continuous improvement.
