ACCJC reaffirmed accreditation to Ventura County Community College District colleges, Feb. 2017
VENTURA, Calif. – Following the accreditation visits from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC), in September 2016, Chancellor Bernard Luskin, is pleased to announce the commission reaffirmed accreditation for 18 months for Moorpark College, Oxnard College and Ventura College. After careful review of the Institutional Self-Evaluation Reports and evidentiary materials submitted by each institution, the ACCJC determined that each college “is in substantial compliance” with Eligibility Requirements, Accreditation Standards and Commission policies for reaffirmation. An 18-month review of recommended improvements, noted in the evaluations, followed by a visit to each campus by Commission representatives will be scheduled.
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we are pleased with the findings of the ACCJC,” stated VCCCD Board Chair Bernardo Perez. “The Board is proud of the hard work the colleges put forth in the self-evaluation reports and look forward to supporting the college presidents in meeting any recommended improvements suggested by the ACCJC,” added Perez.
The ACCJC’s Eligibility Requirements and Standards may be found on the ACCJC website at www.accjc.org.
