Welcome to the SACSCOC Website

Welcome! This website is designed to keep the Appalachian State University community abreast of the Reaffirmation of Accreditation process for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Appalachian State University was first awarded accreditation by SACSCOC in 1942. Since our last re-affirmation of accreditation in 2003, much has changed both within our university and among the standards required by SACSCOC. The idea behind these pages is to help faculty, staff, students, and administrators understand the requirements of accreditation so we can respond effectively.
