Reaffirmation of Accreditation

The College of Charleston was last reaffirmed in 2007. The College is currently preparing for its next reaffirmation of accreditation in 2017. This process involves two main components:

  • Compliance Certification: The compliance certification demonstrates that the university is now, and has been, in compliance with the nearly 100 SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation.
  • Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP): The QEP document proposes a program to improve student learning or the learning environment on campus over the five years following reaffirmation of accreditation.

Overseeing this overall process are: A Leadership Team; a SACSCOC Reaffirmation Steering Committee; and a QEP Committee. The College of Charleston organizational structure is shown below.
