New site locations, site closures, and new degree, certificate, joint degree, and dual degree programs may require approval from SACSCOC before the programs can begin or close. Documentation to SACSCOC may include a written letter of notification and/or a proposal. Review the resources below and consult with the SACSCOC liaison to help determine if one or both of these is required. While SACSCOC approval cannot occur until the UNC General Administration approvals have been secured, completion of these documents can take place simultaneously.
The Executive Director has been charged with coordinating the reviews and approvals required by SACSCOC and ensuring compliance with the University's policy on Substantive Change for Regional Accreditation.
