Aiken Technical College’s Accreditation Reaffirmed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has reaffirmed the accreditation of Aiken Technical College for another 10 years.
“This is a significant milestone for Aiken Technical College, especially as the College approaches its 50th anniversary. This was a campus-wide effort, and I thank everyone involved for their dedication and hard work during this process,” said Dr. Forest Mahan, President of Aiken Technical College. “Reaffirmation of Aiken Technical College’s accreditation demonstrates that the College is continuing to provide high-quality educational and workforce development opportunities to serve the needs of our students and community.”
All institutions accredited by SACSCOC are required to have their accreditation reaffirmed every 10 years to remain in good standing. The reaffirmation process included submission of reports that demonstrated the College’s adherence to SACSCOC standards and guidelines as well as an on-site visit held virtually in October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The process also included the launch of the College’s new Quality Enhancement Plan, “Read, Write, Achieve,” which is focused on improving student reading and writing outcomes and increasing student use of campus reading and writing support services.
