About Our Report

About Our Compliance Report

Francis Marion University’s Compliance Report has been written and compiled over a period of time beginning in Spring 2006.  The evidence supporting our compliance judgments is derived from documents available at the time each analysis was completed.  Consequently, reviewers might want to access University catalogs and student handbooks from these academic years: 2005-2006, 2006-2007, and 2007-2008.  Faculty handbooks from 2005 and 2007 are also referenced.

The following sections help familiarize reviewers with the organization of the Compliance Report, the technical requirements for electronic access, the development processes, and the contributors throughout the University community.
