SACSCOC decennial reaffirmation of accreditation is an essential multiyear process that involves each unit of the University to review itself and its processes against the SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation: Foundation for Quality Enhancement with ethical integrity and showcase our commitment to our core mission of instruction, research and service. It is our institutional report card as well as our opportunity to discover how we can improve through honest assessment of our programs, services and processes. This systematic self-study and review, required by SACSCOC, ensures that B-CU continues to enhance its educational quality. 

It is important for the entire campus to support our SACSCOC accreditation approach as a high priority and to ensure that B-CU continues to remain as an outstanding university. Our success depends on the collective dedication to this important endeavor in time, effort, and resources. 

SACSCOC accreditation allows our students to have access to federally subsidized financial aid and ensures that B-CU courses and degrees will be recognized regionally and nationally. A successful reaffirmation is essential to our ability to function as an institution of higher education, and it is also an opportunity to engage in a campus-wide self-assessment. 

In order to keep B-CU faculty, staff, students, and administrators abreast of and to ensure compliance with the SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation, this website is designed to provide important resources and information related to the SACSCOC accreditation requirements that focus on goals, outcomes and use of results as measures of institutional effectiveness based on four key elements: 1) Peer review; 2) Institutional integrity; 3) Continuous improvement; and 4) Focus on student learning.
