(b)  The self‑study may be conducted utilizing a recent institutional self‑study conducted within the past three years or one currently underway for the Southern Association of Colleges and Universities accreditation or re‑accreditation.  Care should be taken to appropriately supplement materials used in the Southern Association self‑study with information required specifically for certification by the Commission, as found in the self‑evaluation report forms.
