Welcome to the Sacramento City College Accreditation Web Page. Institutional Accreditation is public certification that institutions meet defined standards of quality and responsibility.
Sacramento City 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: http://www.accjc.org
The last Accreditation site visit to Sacramento City College occurred October 12-15, 2009. The Evaluation Report and letter reaffirming Accreditation was received in February 2010. The Commission took action to reaffirm accreditation. All colleges are required to submit a Midterm Report in the third year after a comprehensive evaluation. SCC submitted a Midterm Report in Fall 2012. The next comprehensive evaluation of SCC will occur during the Fall 2015 (see the link in the left menu bar of this page).
Prior to the October 2009 site visit, a self study was written based on the current 2002 standards. A pre-self study committee was formed in Spring 2007 and the self study was completed in Spring 2009. The 2009 Self Study, as well as older accreditation documents can be found by using the links in the left menu bar of this page.
