Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges

Welcome to the University of South Carolina Upstate Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges web pages. The information presented on these pages highlights the fact that the University of South Carolina Upstate campus community looks upon the SACSCOC requirements and standards as best practices refined over the years by institutional representatives from our region.  

We embrace these standards and use them to guide our policies and plans. This is more critical than ever as we face unprecedented resource challenges and an uncertain economic future. Becoming more efficient and more effective, guided in part by SACSCOC best practices, will enable USC Upstate to sustain our unprecedented growth while enhancing the quality of the education we deliver to students.
