In January 2016, the QEP Development Team, which consisted of a broadly representative group of CFCC employees from a variety of instructional and service areas, began drafting the QEP document. The document was completed and submitted to SACSCOC in August 2016.
The on-site committee visited the college in October 2016 at which time the QEP was presented. At the culmination of the on-site committee visit, two QEP-specific recommendations were given, and the QEP was revised based on that feedback. The revised QEP document was sent to SACS for review in March 2017. In July 2017, SACS confirmed that the revised QEP passed with no recommendations.
