South Carolina State University

 

Programs Eligible for Accreditation and

Programs Accredited

 

Applicable to four- and two-year institutions   

                                                                                                              

 

This form includes a list of accrediting bodies for which one or more academic programs are currently accreditable in a South Carolina institution as reported on U.S. Department of Education FORM IPEDS-1C-1 (6-1-94) and/or have been approved by the Commission on Higher Education.

 

According to Section 59-101-350, the Commission is responsible for collecting “the number and percentage of accredited programs and the number and percentage of programs eligible for accreditation” from four- and two-year post-secondary institutions to be included in the annual report to the General Assembly.  The Commission on Higher Education also uses this information as a base to fulfill requirements in Section 59-103-30 for performance funding to collect information on Instructional Quality by looking at the accreditation of degree-granting programs.

 

If your institution offers one or more programs listed in the Commission’s current Inventory of Academic Degree Programs (http://www.che400.state.sc.us/web/affairs.htm) that is accreditable in one or more of the following categories, you should complete the columns in the table that follows by placing an “x” in the box.  For those agencies that accredit individual programs within departments, please put the number of programs in parentheses beside the “x”.  An accreditable program is one that is eligible for accreditation, regardless of whether or not the institution chooses to pursue accreditation.  An accredited program is one that has been granted full accreditation status by the appropriate accrediting agency.

 

The addition or deletion of an agency from this list is a prescribed process, administered through the Commission’s Academic Affairs Division.  If an agency is added to this list the date that it is added dictates when an accreditable program should be counted “against” the institution with regard to its full accreditation.  The most recent agencies that have been added to the list have their corresponding dates listed so that institutions can better calculate the time frame for accreditation.  Any agencies that appear on the list without a corresponding date should be understood to have appeared prior to May 1998. For a complete set of policies and procedures regarding this process, see the Commission’s website at: http://www.che400.state.sc.us/web/Academic/accreditation%20guidelines.htm.
