Accreditation

PRESIDENT’S WELCOME

Denise Whisenhunt Acting President

Welcome

Accreditation is a comprehensive process for evaluating and certifying the quality of education and is designed to assure students and the greater public that an educational institution meets or exceeds standards of good practice recognized by the educational community. Accreditation assures that college course credits, associate degrees, and occupational certificates will be recognized by other colleges and universities, guaranteeing that academic work may be transferred in pursuit of advanced degrees. Accreditation also assures the business community that the academic work a student completes best prepares her/him for employment in the workplace.


The intent of this website is to provide the public information on our accreditation progress reports and our efforts toward fully meeting the accreditation standards. 

I welcome you to explore and learn more about our College mission and values, and come to know why our campus community is so proud of My City/My Journey/My Future!
