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.
The Accreditation of Lassen Community College was last reaffirmed in January 2010. ACCJC accepted our Mid-term Report in June 2011. Our current Comprehensive Self-Evaluation was submitted to ACCJC in December 2013. The evaluation team visit will occur March 17-20, 2014.
