SACSCOC is Coming!


Did you know that every 10 years universities must seek reaffirmation of their accreditation? UTA will host a team of eight external reviewers Tuesday-Thursday, April 4-6, that will visit with various units to review their policies. A key element of the SACSCOC reaccreditation process is the development of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).

These activities include internships, capstone projects, service learning, study abroad, and undergraduate research. Read the QEP plan at LEARN MORE.
