December 2016 Accreditation Actions and Public Disclosure Statements

December 2016 Accreditation Actions

At its meeting on December 4, 2016, the SACSCOC’s Board of Trustees took a number of actions regarding the accreditation status of applicant, candidate, and member institutions in its region.  (Click onto December 2016 Accreditation Actions.)  The list does not include the names of institutions required only to submit additional monitoring reports unless the reviews resulted in negative actions.

The list immediately below includes the names of institutions reviewed in December 2015 and June 2016 that were placed on a sanction and required to submit additional reports for December 2016.  Because they were removed from a sanction during the meeting of the SACSCOC’s Board of Trustees on December 4, 2016, their Disclosure Statements have been deleted from the Commission’s website.  Institutions removed from sanction are as follows:

  • Huntingdon College, Montgomery, Alabama
  • Kentucky Wesleyan College, Owensboro, Kentucky
  • Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Perkinston, Mississippi
  • The University of Tennessee at Martin, Martin, Tennessee

December 2016 Public Disclosure Statements

SACSCOC is authorized to post on its website Disclosure Statements for the following actions regarding the accreditation status of institutions: (1) institutions placed or continued on Warning or Probation, (2) institutions removed from accreditation or candidacy, (3) institutions denied initial candidacy or accreditation, (4) institutions denied authorization of a candidacy committee, and (5) special committees authorized separate from another SACSCOC’s Board of Trustees action.

Each of the institutions listed below has had a Disclosure Statement prepared based on the action taken on December 4, 2016. The Statement tells the status of the institution, the definition of the action taken, the reason for the action, the next step in the institution’s review, and any other recent action taken by SACSCOC’s Board that can be disclosed.  All information disclosed in the following Statements is in accord with SACSCOC’s policy “Disclosure of Accrediting Documents and Actions of SACSCOC.”
