As you are aware, the Network & Software Solutions (NSS) is a new program offering at WVJC and the Business Administration (BA) program has undergone a “total overhaul” and, as such, this program is also considered a new program offering. When a campus offers a new program, the accrediting agency by which the school is accredited, is required to visit the campus within one year after the program is offered to ensure that the equipment that is needed to instruct the program has been purchased and the students are being instructed by qualified instructors.
The new NSS and BA programs have been in effect for approximately one year, therefore, WVJC’s accrediting agency, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) will be here on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 to review those two programs. The team will only be on campus for one day to check out these two new program offerings. If you are enrolled in either of these programs, one of the team members may visit your class or ask you questions regarding the program and your educational experience. Should you be asked a question, please answer the question honestly and address each team member with the respect and courtesy they deserve.
Should you have any questions regarding this memo, please don’t hesitate to see me.
