SACSCOC Fifth-Year Interim Report

The College of Charleston's Fifth-Year Interim Report is due to SACSCOC March 25, 2013, and includes two primary components: an Impact Report for Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and an abbreviated Compliance Certification.  The Impact Report will provide evidence of student learning within the First Year Experience program, while the Compliance Certification will address the sixteen SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation listed in the table below.  In addition, the College may be asked to complete a follow-up report on assessment of general education competencies.

The Fifth-Year interim Report was developed by SACSCOC to respond to the U.S. Department of Education's requirements that accrediting bodies continuously monitor institutions to ensure compliance.
