A warning is not unanticipated in this situation. It is expected that the college will be able to demonstrate to SACS that these issues have been completely resolved within 12 months.
The college has already made notable strides to correct budgeting issues and return the institution to solid financial footing. It will continue to implement and strengthen the controls put in place during the summer of this year so that it may resolve any remaining deficiencies and bring the budget back into balance.
While the college is under this warning, the institution’s full accreditation remains in place.
College officials said they value the standards SACS sets for its members — these standards allow the college to achieve its mission as Georgia’s largest access institution.
