GMC’s 10-year reaffirmation review

Every ten years, higher education institutions are reaffirmed for accreditation. Last week the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) on-site committee spent four days with Georgia Military College as part of this process. The SACSCOC visiting committee reviewed GMC to determine its compliance with 97 standards. These over-arching standards include: academics, student services, library support, engineering support, and financial requirements, just to name a few of the areas inspected. During this four-day on-site review, the committee members also visited 5 of the 13 GMC campuses (Milledgeville, Fayetteville, Stone Mountain, Dublin, the Online Campus, and last month the Valdosta Campus). After visiting the GMC campuses and reviewing these 97 standards, the SACSCOC visiting committee delivered their results during the exit conference on September 29th and reported no findings of non-compliance.

Randy New, Chair of the Board of Trustees for GMC commented how proud he was of the faculty and staff of GMC. “The leadership and every member of the GMC team prepared for this review for the past eighteen months and their hard work and dedication were evident in the results.” The SACSCOC’s Board of Trustees will provide the final decision on GMC’s reaffirmation in June 2017.

SACSCOC is the regional accrediting body in eleven U.S. Southern states and in Latin America for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s or doctoral degrees.
