What is a QEP?

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a five-year plan to improve student learning outcomes and/or student success across the college and includes input from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other members of the college community. The college has created this plan as a part of maintaining the standards of accreditation set forth by the Southern Associations of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC).
