On Wednesday, Florida A&M University Interim President Larry Robinson confirmed that the university had completed the comprehensive compliance audit and Compliance Certification Document required for its reaffirmation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
“Even as [Hurricane Irma] approached, our Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) team was able to complete and submit our Compliance Certification Document within the deadline,” Robinson said in a public statement.
According to SACSCOC, “the Comprehensive Compliance Audit includes an assessment of all programs and courses offered by the institution on-campus and off-campus, and those offered through distance learning.” Schools must also submit a Compliance Certification Document that “attests to the institution’s honest assessment of compliance with the accreditation requirements of the Commission on Colleges” along with the audit.
FAMU is continuing its reaffirmation of accreditation process with SACSCOC. SACSCOC will make a decision in 2018 on whether to extend FAMU’s accreditation for another ten-year period.
