What is accreditation?

Accreditation is a process for evaluation and assuring the quality of education used by the American higher education community. Each institution affiliated with the ACCJC voluntarily undergoes a six-year cycle of institutional self-evaluation and professional peer review, measuring itself against the Accreditation Standards. Based upon reports and peer review, the Commission determines the accredited status of an institution, which is made public through Commission announcements.
