350.050 Substantive Change Reporting Policy


FIU, a member institution, is required to notify the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges of changes in accordance with its substantive change policy, and when required, seek approval prior to the initiation of changes.

SACSCOC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as an agency whose accreditation enables its member institutions to seek eligibility to participate in Title IV programs. To maintain its recognition with the U.S. Department of Education, SACSCOC has incorporated federal requirements into its substantive change policy and procedures. Some of these requirements specify that an institution seek and receive approval prior to the initiation of a substantive change so that the change can be included in the institution’s scope of accreditation.
