• Amendments to the 2013 Handbook

    December 11, 2014 - WSCUC

According to federal regulations, institutions have the right to appeal an adverse Commission Action, and accrediting agencies are required to have appeals processes in place to accommodate such appeals. WSCUC has both an Adverse Action Review Process, outlined in the 2013 Handbook, and an Institutional Appeals Policy. An analysis of the review and appeals processes revealed both inconsistencies and contradictions between these two processes.

CFR 2.2a was revised to distinguish between expectations at the undergraduate level for bachelor’s and associate’s degrees.

The Commission will publish a revision of the Handbook in Q1 2015 to include these changes and a number of minor edits.
