If your institution offers one or more programslisted in the Commission’s current Inventory of Academic Degree Programs (http://www.che.sc.gov/academicaffairs/affairs.htm )that is accreditable in one or more of the followingcategories, you should complete the columns in the table that follows byplacing an “x” in the box.For thoseagencies that accredit individual programs within departments, please put thenumber of programs in parentheses beside the “x”.An accreditableprogram is one that is eligible for accreditation, regardless of whether or notthe institution chooses to pursue accreditation.An accredited program is one that hasbeen granted full accreditation status by the appropriate accreditingagency.

 

The addition or deletion of an agency from thislist is a prescribed process, administered through the Commission’s AcademicAffairs Division.If an agency is addedto this list the date that it is added dictates when an accreditableprogram should be counted “against” the institution with regard to its fullaccreditation.The most recent agenciesthat have been added to the list have their corresponding dates listed so thatinstitutions can better calculate the time frame for accreditation.Any agencies that appear on the list withouta corresponding date should be understood to have appeared prior to May 1998.For a complete set of policies and procedures regarding this process, see theCommission’s website at: http://www.che.sc.gov/Academicaffairs/accreditation%20guidelines.doc .
