SACS Readiness Week: Institutional Responsibility for Commission PolicesPresentation Transcript
Institutional Responsibility for Commission Polices Substantive Change, Compliance with Commission Policies, and Representation of Status with the Commission
3.12 Substantive Change X Compliance
Jackson State University has been required to submit prospectuses to the Commission for Substantive Change.
Those include the establishment of the undergraduate engineering programs and the Doctor of Public Health program.
All other modifications to academic programs and services have been approved by SACS after JSU provided proper notification
3.13 Compliance with Other Commission Policies X Compliance
This standard addresses the annual reports required by the Commission
Those reports include the Institutional Profile for General Information and Enrollment ( completed by Institutional Research ) and the Institutional Profile for Financial Information ( completed by the Office of Financial Services ).
3.14 Representation of Status with the Commission X Partial Compliance
Jackson State University accurately publishes information related to accreditation with the Commission.
However, new content has been added to the standard which reads:
… the Commission is to be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support and institution’s significant non-compliance with a requirement or standard.
This is being corrected in the revisions to the academic catalogs.
