Compliance Certification

The Compliance Certification, submitted fifteen (15) months in advance of an
institution’s scheduled reaffirmation, is a document completed by the institution
that demonstrates its judgment of the extent of its compliance with each of
the Core Requirements and Standards. The signatures of the institution’s chief
executive officer and accreditation liaison are required. By signing the document,
these individuals certify that the process of institutional self-assessment has been
thorough, honest, and forthright, and that the information contained in the
document is truthful, accurate, and complete. (SACSCOC 2018 Principles of Accreditation)
