Fifth-Year Interim ReportOn the horizon, the College’s Fifth-Year Interim Report is due to SACSCOC on September 15, 2017, and includes an Impact Report for Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and an abbreviated Compliance Certification. The Impact Report will provide evidence of student learning within the Service-Learning program, while the Compliance Certification will address specific SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation. 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.
The Fifth-Year Interim Report is divided into four primary sections:
Part I: Signatures Attesting to Integrity. Requests that the chief executive officer and accreditation liaison attest to the accuracy of institutional assessment and documentation supporting that assessment.
Part II: Institutional Summary Form Prepared for Commission Reviews. Requests that the institution complete the "Institutional Summary Form Prepared for Commission Reviews."
Part III: Fifth-Year Compliance Certification. Monitors continued compliance with identified Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Requirements at the decennial interval.
Part IV: Impact Report of the Quality Enhancement Plan. Provides an institution with the opportunity to address -- through a systematic, sustained, institution-wide effort -- a key student learning issue fundamental to the institution's mission.
