​W​​hat is Accred​​​​itation?

Accreditation is the primary means by which colleges in the United States assure and improve quality. Colleges must apply for reaffirmation of ac​cred​itation every six years. The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC/W​ASC), 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.​​
