AQIP Quality Checkup Visit
What is an AQIP Quality Checkup Visit?
During the seven-year cycle leading up to Reaffirmation of Accreditation, AQIP requires a site visit to each institution conducted by two or more trained evaluators who will spend at least two days on campus. The team prepares for the visit by reviewing relevant organizational and AQIP file materials. Quality Checkup visits occur in the two-year period before an organization’s scheduled Reaffirmation of Accreditation. The Quality Checkup team produces a written report summarizing its findings, identifying those areas the team has verified and/or clarified, and addressing the institution’s compliance with the Criteria for Accreditation, noting any areas that require additional clarification before Reaffirmation of Accreditation.
SFCC's first ever AQIP Quality Checkup Visit occured February 15-17, 2012. Below is information that was shared with the SFCC campus and HLC reviewers during the time leading up to and following this important milestone in SFCC's accreditation and quality journey.
