UT Dallas' SACSCOC Project

2024 Fifth-Year Interim Report Project Timeline1

The timeline for the 2024 Fifth-Year Interim Report project shows the critical dates for submitting two key documents to SACSCOC: the completed Fifth-Year Interim Year (5YR) and the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Impact Report. Additionally, the timeline also includes the meeting dates for the Fifth-Year Leadership Team and the Faculty Fifth-Year Committee. Dr. Serenity Rose King, the associate provost for policy and program coordination and SACSCOC liaison, and her staff will be responsible for writing and editing the reports prior to UT Dallas’ formal submission on March 15, 2024.

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

The timeline shown below is in a table format, however users can also download a PDF version of the timeline. Contact Dr. King by email or by telephone at 972.883.6749 if you have any questions.
