South Carolina State University will make an appeal this week to have its probation repealed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
According to the Orangeburg Times and Democrat, interim S.C. State President Dr. W. Franklin Evans said in a prepared statement he’s “certainly confident that S.C. State University has a compelling story, in which we will try and demonstrate that S.C. State complies with SACSCOC requirements.”
A decision to either remove the institution from probation or drop it from membership will be announced on Thursday.
S.C. State was placed on warning by the accrediting agency for matters related to governance and finance in June 2013. In June 2014, its status was dropped to probation.
