Accreditation

San Jose City College Accreditation

San Jose City College is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), Western Association of Schools and Colleges, which accredits community colleges and other associate degree granting institutions in the Western region of the U.S.  One of seven regional accrediting commissions, the ACCJC is authorized to operate by the U.S. Department of Education through the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. The criteria are research-based guidelines of systemic school improvement that address accreditation’s central tenet: a school operates with a clear understanding of its purpose.

Accreditation is a voluntary system of self-regulation developed to evaluate overall educational quality and institutional effectiveness (The ACCJC’s complete Purpose Statement is available in Article I, section 2 of its Bylaws). The ACCJC accreditation process provides assurance to the public that the accredited member colleges meet the Standards; the education earned at the institutions is of value to the student who earned it; and employers, trade or profession-related licensing agencies, and other colleges and universities can accept a student’s credential as legitimate.

For more information on San Jose City College’s Accreditation, please contact Duncan Graham, Accreditation Liaison Officer by phone (408) 288-3142 or by email Duncan.Graham@sjcc.edu.
