Southeast Tech was officially accepted into the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) AQIP process for accreditation December 2006.
AQIP stands for the Academic Quality Improvement Program. We are pleased to be a part of this dynamic accreditation process based on continuous quality improvement ( www.aqip.org ).
AQIP is a process through which an already-accredited institution can maintain accreditation through a series of activities over an 8-year period: development and update of a comprehensive systems portfolio with external review; strategy forum collaborations internally and with other institutions; action projects with yearly updates and HLC peer action project review; on-campus comprehensive quality and federal compliance reviews, and reaffirmation of accreditation.

2014-2015 Strategy Forum Participation (Campus based Forum pilot)
2016-2017 Systems Portfolio Submission and Appraisal by Peer Reviewers
