SACSCOC Policies

To gain or maintain accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, an institution must comply with the policies and procedures of the Commission, and with the standards contained in the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement. The Commission applies the requirements of its Principles to all applicant, candidate, and member institutions, regardless of type of institution (public, private for-profit, or private not-for-profit).
