UT Dallas’ SACSCOC Project

2007 SACSCOC Project Timeline

The timeline for the UTD-SACSCOC Project represented a collection of both firm and tentative dates or targets. Each date or target represented an important milestone toward reaffirmation. Many of these targets required the submission of reports or data files for various committees to complete their assignments; other targets required the Project Team to submit materials to the Commission for review and/or approval.
