Accreditation Update

On Wednesday, January 11 and Thursday, January 12, San Antonio College, St. Philip’s College and Northwest Vista College each received a separate letter from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) regarding the December 2016 Board Action placing each of the colleges on a 12-month warning period.

In the letters, the Commission requested each institution submit a report addressing these standards by September 8, 2017. It is important to note that NVC, SAC, and SPC remain accredited by SACSCOC. Eligible students attending NVC, SAC and SPC are still able to receive federal financial aid, can still transfer to universities, and are still encouraged to graduate from their respective college, per their specific degree plan. The college presidents are working collaboratively, along with the Board of Trustees and Chancellor Bruce Leslie, to address all of the Commission’s concerns and to make the recommended corrective actions quickly and completely.
