SACSCOC Fifth-Year Interim Report

Western Texas College’s Fifth-Year Interim Report is due to SACSCOC in October 2013, and includes two primary components: an Impact Report for Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and an abbreviated Compliance Certification. The Impact Report will provide evidence of implementation of the teaching of critical thinking skills, while the Compliance Certification will address the sixteen SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation listed below. In addition, the College may be asked to complete a follow-up report on assessment of general education competencies.
The Fifth-Year interim Report was developed by SACS to respond to the U.S. Department of Education's requirements that accrediting bodies continuously monitor institutions to ensure compliance. The timeline, process, and preparation/submission updates will be posted here.
