A Progress Report is a report requested by the Commission for special purposes. It can occur at any time in the 6-year accreditation cycle. A Progress Report requires that the institution provide information, evidence, and analysis regarding the resolution of the issues to which it was directed by the Commission's Action Letter. The institution's report will be reviewed by the Commission at its next regularly scheduled meeting and the institution will be notified as to what action, if any, it must take next.
Visits accompanying Progress Reports are normally one-day visits by a team of two members, typically the chair of the comprehensive evaluation team familiar with the issues confronting the institution and a member of the Commission or Commission staff. The team is appointed by the Commission and reviewed by the institution in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest.
The purposes of the team conducting this visit are to:
- Verify the accuracy and relevance of the report submitted by the college in response to the specific action of the Commission.
- Determine the extent to which the institution now meets the Commission standards cited in the recommendations.
- Report findings and recommendations to the Commission.
