With the Board’s approval, ASCC may now submit its Self-Study to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), a division of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. A team representing the ACCJC will review the ASCC Self-Study in advance of making a site visit to the College in September of this year as part of the WASC accreditation renewal process.
