SACS Principles of Accreditation

Section II: COC Core Requirement

2.7.4 The institution provides instruction for all course work required for at least one degree program at each level at which it awards degrees. If the institution makes arrangements for some instruction to be provided by other accredited institutions or entities through contracts or consortia, or uses some other alternative approach to meeting this requirement, the alternative approach must be approved by the Commission on Colleges. In all cases, the institution demonstrates that it controls all aspects of its educational program.

Compliance.

NARRATIVE/JUSTIFICATION FOR JUDGMENT OF COMPLIANCE

Texas A&M International University provides instruction for all courses required in degree programs at each level.  All courses are initiated by faculty and follow the approval process through addition to the course inventory at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Course and Program Development).  However, courses taken at other accredited institutions are normally accepted in transfer as long as the student meets the residency requirement for the degree. (Catalog 2004-2005, Division of Student Affairs, Transfer Student Admission) (Catalog 2004-2005, Academic Regulations - Undergraduate, Residence Requirement) (Catalog 2004-2005, Academic Regulations - Graduate, Transfer of Graduate-level Study)

The University also participates in collaborative programs with other institutions within the Texas A&M University System. The Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies degree is delivered under a collaborative agreement between Texas A&M University, the degree granting institution, and the following collaborative institutions: Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University - Kingsville, Texas A&M International University.(Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Quarterly Meeting Agenda, January 2004, Agenda Item X.E.1) (Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Minutes, Regular Quarterly Meeting, January 29, 2004, Item X.E.1)

Texas A&M International University participates in the Texas Electronic Coalition for Physics (TECP), a coalition of physics programs located throughout the state of Texas which provide a complete, high quality education in physics. Member institutions of TECP include:

Upper division physics courses are provided via the Internet and the Trans-Texas Video Network. Students interested in pursuing research activities are linked with faculty participating in the TECP. Students completing the TECP curriculum receive sufficient education and training preparing them to succeed in graduate school, professional school and industry.
