On Monday, December 5,
2011, the Interdenominational Theological Center received notice
from the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges Commission
on Colleges that accreditation of the Center has been placed on
warning status. This means that the Center remains accredited,
however a monitoring report must be submitted by September 2012.
The warning will have no
impact on the Center’s students or their education at ITC. ITC
students will continue to receive an excellent education.
Warning is a public
sanction imposed by the Commission on Colleges following
determination of non-compliance with an aspect of the Core
Requirements, Comprehensive Standards or the Federal
Requirements of the Principles of Accreditation of the
Commission. This could include failure to make timely and
significant progress towards correcting deficiencies that led to
the finding of non-compliance, or failure to comply with
Commission policies and procedures. The maximum total time
during one monitoring period that an institution may be on
warning status is two years.
“I anticipate that we
will resolve all issues with regard to compliance before ITC’s
next scheduled review,” said Dr. Ronald E. Peters, president of
