What is QEP?

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a comprehensive and data-driven plan that focuses on improving student learning and/or student success outcomes and is one of the major components of the 10-year SACSCOC reaffirmation process.

The QEP is designed to address a specific issue or theme that is relevant to the institution and its students. It involves a detailed, five-year plan of action with specific goals, objectives, and strategies for achieving those goals, and should not exceed 100 pages (75 pages of narrative; 25 pages of support documentation).

The full QEP report will be submitted to SACSCOC by Sept. 4, 2023. It will be reviewed by the SACSCOC On-Site Reaffirmation Review Committee during its visit to Snead State’s campus on October 23-26, 2023. Changes to the QEP may be required in response to the Committee’s findings.

In 2029, Snead State will submit a Fifth Year Interim Report to SACSCOC that includes an “Impact Report of the Quality Enhancement Plan” as one component.

Snead State Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award the associate degree.  Snead State Community College may also offer credentials such as certificates and diplomas at approved degree levels.

Snead State’s 2024 QEP Topic: Academic Advising

Snead State Community College’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Guiding Parsons to Success (GPS), focuses on student success by improving on the College’s current academic advising processes.

Improvements include (1) migrating from the current decentralized, faculty-only advising model to a more centralized dual model, (2) creating an Advising Center, (3) hiring a Director for Academic Advising, (4) hiring a small number of professional Academic Advisors, and (5) providing better professional development and resources to all those engaged in academic advising.
