SC State's Response to the 'warning' from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

SC State Logo...As a result of a visit by a Special Committee of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), a ‘warning’ for SC State University was posted on their official website on Tuesday, December 16, 2008.

The University and its governing body are greatly concerned by this action; however, the public warning issued by SACS does not impact the University’s current accreditation status. The University is fully accredited and the warning does not diminish that status in anyway.

The University pledges its full commitment to take appropriate actions to fully address all citied issues.

The public warning posted on (12-16-08) gives no specific instructions. SC State is awaiting the full report from the SACS Commission on Colleges. SC State will inform stakeholders following the submission of its response to the warning and final action by SACS.

Questions should be directed to Erica S. Prioleau, Director of University Relations and Marketing at (803) 378-1407 or via e-mail at
