ACCJC June 2009 Commission Actions

The June 2009 actions of the ACCJC Commission are now available on the "Recent Commission Actions" page of their website and some colleges have already posted copies online of their action letters and corresponding accreditation reports. The "Action Letters and Reports" page of The Follow-Up Report has been updated with the latest actions and available links for each college. The following table summarizes the actions of the Commission for 2009 (click on the image to see a larger version of the table):

The June 2009 actions will soon be added to the analysis and charts on the "Commission Actions and Status" page of The Follow-Up Report. Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that over 300 degrees, programs, or certificates were submitted for substantive change approval in June for exceeding 50% or more delivery through a distance or electronic delivery mode (more than twice the number submitted for approval in January). It appears that the rumors and warnings of a "rampant creep" of offerings to online delivery without the required prior approval of the Commission may have been accurate. I wonder how many colleges are currently auditing their offerings and writing after-the-fact requests for substantive change approvals? How many more should be? How much additional catch-up time will the Commission give us before it starts issuing sanctions?
