What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is the primary means by which colleges in the United States assure and improve quality. Colleges must apply for reaffirmation of accreditation every six years. The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC/WASC), as overseen by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), takes actions on accreditation status for the California Community Colleges. The accreditation process focuses on self-evaluation, peer review, and quality improvement.
Lassen Community College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, 10 Commercial Blvd., Suite 204, Novato, CA 94949, (415) 506-0234, an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education. Additional information about accreditation, including the filing of complaints against member institutions, can be found at: www.accjc.org
The Accreditation of Lassen Community College was last reaffirmed in June 2014. A Mid-term Report is due March 15, 2017.
