QEP - Quality Enhancement Plan

Full details and Annual Reports can be found at MathPLUS.

ACC's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a course of action to improve student learning. Although it is a requirement for accreditation, it also is an opportunity for the college to enhance its overall quality and effectiveness by increasing student achievement in a single, critical area. According to accreditation standards, the QEP must be focused, grounded in ACC's mission, and connected to its strategic plan.

Fifth-Year Interim Report

While the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) conducts an intensive review of its member institutions every 10 years, the U.S. Department of Education requires accrediting agencies to monitor institutions more often to ensure that those eligible for federal funds continue to meet accreditation standards. To that end, the commission has developed a Fifth-Year Interim Report.
