December 2018 Accreditation Actions and Public Disclosure Statements

December 2018 Accreditation Actions

At its meeting on December 9, 2018, 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 2018 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 institutions listed immediately below were reviewed in December 2017 or June 2018, placed on a sanction, and required to submit additional reports for December 2018.  Because they were removed from a sanction during the meeting of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees on December 9, 2018, their Disclosure Statements have been deleted from the SACSCOC website.

  • Abilene Christian University, Abilene, Texas (removed from Warning)
  • Belmont Abbey College, Belmont, North Carolina (removed from Probation)
  • Johnson C. Smith University, Charlotte, North Carolina (removed from Probation)
  • Saint Augustine’s University, Raleigh, North Carolina (removed from Probation)
