      Georgia Health Sciences University (GHSU) is responsible for compliance with the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (Commission) Substantive Change Policy as a condition of continued regional accreditation. Substantive change is defined by the Commission as “a significant modification or expansion of the nature and scope of an accredited institution.” Some changes, such as offering courses on-line that amount to less than 25% of the coursework needed to complete a degree, certificate or diploma, do not need to be reported to the Commission. Others, such as offering from 25% to 49% of the coursework required for a program on-line, simply require that the Commission be notified in advance of the implementation of the change. Larger scale changes, such as adding significantly different programs to the academic curriculum or offering a majority of the coursework needed to complete a degree, certificate or diploma on-line, require written notification at least 6 months in advance and approval of a prospectus, which must be submitted at least 3 months prior to the anticipated implementation date. Institutions seeking to offer coursework at a more advanced level than that for which they are currently approved must notify the Commission of their intent at least 12 months in advance, and submit an application for level change by April 15 for review at the June meeting of the Board of trustees or by October 1 for review at the December meeting.
