Substantive Change

San Antonio College (SAC) is a member of and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The U.S. Department of Education recognizes SACSCOC as an agency whose accreditation enables its members to seek eligibility to participate in Title IV programs. SACSCOC has an obligation to the U.S. Department of Education to review and approve changes of a substantive nature initiated by its member institutions between decennial reviews. The SACSCOC Substantive Change Policy to which this policy refers, revised in 2010 to include expanded reporting requirements mandated by new federal regulations, can be found at
