Reaffirmation Process

Rollins College's next reaffirmation year is 2015. Required preparations for reaffirmation include:

  • A Compliance Certification document, demonstrating the College's judgment of the extent of its compliance with each of the Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Regulations.
  • A review of the Compliance Certification by an off-site review committee which advises the on-site review committee
  • The development of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that describes a course of action addressing topics/issues related to enhancing student learning.
  • A review of the College by an on-site committee of professional peers to assess strengths and weaknesses. This committee provides a written report which helps the institution improve its programs, refine its QEP, and informs the Commission on their decision to grant, continue, reaffirm, or withdraw accreditation.

 

Fifth-Year Interim Report

An abbreviated version of the Compliance Certification document, as well as outcomes on the institution's Quality Enhancement Plan are required at the fifth-year mark. The College submitted its Fifth-Year Interim Report in March 2011.
