UT Dallas' SACSCOC Project

2018 Reaffirmation Review Project Timeline1

The timeline for the 2018 Reaffirmation Review project shows the critical dates for submitting two key documents to SACSCOC: the completed Compliance Certification Report (CCR) and the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) proposal1. There are also additional critical dates which include not only the timeframe for SACSCOC to conduct their Off-Site review, as well as visiting UT Dallas campus as part of its On-Site review. Additionally, the dates are also for the various committees who must submit their materials for review and/or approval on time.

Although the timeline is built around these critical dates, it is still subject to change as it is a work in progress.

The timeline shown below is in chart form; however users can also download a PDF version of the timeline.
