The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS COC):
The SACS principles align with established business practices for improving organizations. The documentation that SACS requires is needed to provide a consistent framework for institutional operations. The two main documents required for SACS COC accreditation are 1) compliance certificate; and 2) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).
The compliance certificate, formerly known as the self-study, is the narrative and documentation that supports UMMC’s assertion that the institution has met all the SACS Principles of Accreditation.
There are 82 SACS requirements/principles that center around integrity, core requirements, comprehensive standards and federal requirements.
The QEP is a campus-wide project to improve student learning/learning environment. It began as UMMC underwent reaccreditation and will continue for several years.
