About the ACCJC

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC) accredits community colleges and other associate degree granting institutions in the Western region of the U.S. The ACCJC is one of seven regional accrediting commissions. The ACCJC is authorized to operate by the U.S. Department of Education through the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.

The U.S. peer evaluation system of accreditation is one in which institutions voluntarily participate in self regulation and self evaluation developed to ensure overall educational quality and institutional effectiveness (The Commission's complete Purpose Statement is available in Article I, section 2 of its Bylaws). The ACCJC accreditation process provides assurance to the public that the accredited member colleges meet the Standards; the education earned at the institutions is of value to the student who earned it; and employers, trade or profession-related licensing agencies, and other colleges and universities can accept a student's credential as legitimate.

Submit Comments: ACCJC provides an opportunity for the public to submit comments about an institution during the regular accreditation process. To submit comments, individuals may download and complete the ACCJC Third Party Comment Form and return to the address provided on the form at least five weeks before the team's visit in March 2020.

Complaint Policy: The Commission provides a complaint process regarding an institution's compliance with academic program quality and accrediting standards. More information is available at the the ACCJC Complaint website.
