NOTE: While SACSCOC reviews are episodic (decennial and fifth-year interim), the College is responsible for remaining in compliance with all standards at all times.

Those not marked with an asterisk will not be formally reviewed by SACSCOC until the decennial review. The official process for NeSCC's 2021 Reaffirmation of Accreditation will begin January 2019, with the Compliance Certification due to SACSCOC March 1, 2020 and the on-site visit occurring fall of 2020.

When applicable, our responses to the SACSCOC requirements/standards must address off-campus sites and distance education. Therefore, each writer should collaborate with the Academic Affairs Office to ensure off-campus sites and distance education are adequately addressed when applicable.

Required and suggested documentation for each standard can be found in the SACSCOC Resource Manual at (http://www.sacscoc.org/pdf/2018%20POA%20Resource%20Manual.pdf).

For old 2012 Principles the PR, CR, CS and FR codes denote the following: PR=Principle Requirement, CR=Core Requirement, CS=Comprehensive Standard, FR=Federal Requirement
