Letter to the Community: Statement on SACSCOC Removal of Warning

June 14, 2019

Today, we received word that SACSCOC has removed Sweet Briar College from warning status. Sweet Briar is gratified with this vote of confidence from our accrediting body.

The College has diligently addressed and implemented a sound financial recovery plan, seeking and diversifying resources to deliver its mission. This includes managing its budget and realigning staffing and programs to achieve the new vision.

This vote of confidence by SACSCOC, along with the upgrade of the College’s bond rating by S&P Global for the third straight year, speak to increasing sustainability and progress. We remain laser focused on growing enrollment as the College continues to deliver its excellent education for women, including a distinctive leadership core curriculum.
