A process that involves a collective analysis and judgment by the institution’s internal constituencies, 由机构外部同行进行的知情审查, and a reasoned decision by the elected members of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees, reaffirmation of accreditation is the process for ensuring that member institutions maintain continuing compliance with Commission policies and with the Principles of 认证.

Institutions seeking reaffirmation of accreditation must submit two documents: 1- the 合规认证 2- the 品质提升计划 (QEP). These documents will be reviewed by the 1- Off-site Reaffirmation Committee, 2-现场重申委员会, 3- SACSCOC董事会

It is expected that the QEP will be a continuous improve activity that will yield meaningful data which will be reported when ASU submits its Fifth-Year Interim Report.
