College preparing for SACSCOC reaffirmation

Central Piedmont is preparing for its Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmation in 2024. Our accreditation is vitally important since it impacts the college’s ability to award degrees, diplomas, and certificates to students. It even affects students' ability to receive financial aid from the U.S. Department of Education.

We need help from our employees and students in developing a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which is a requirement of the college’s SACSCOC reaffirmation process. The QEP topic will focus on an issue Central Piedmont can improve upon that deals with student learning outcomes and student success.

Current students and employees can help in the coming months by:

  • virtually attending “Campus Conversations” events in March or April
  • completing an online survey, arriving in your Central Piedmont inbox in late August
  • submitting a research proposal this fall that focuses on a specific student barrier or challenge
