Los Angeles Mission College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The organization is recognized by the Council of Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.
Following the review of the Institutional Self Evaluation Report and site evaluation team visit, in a letter dated July 3, 2013, the ACCJC placed Mission College on Warning¹, the first level of accreditation sanctions. A Follow-Up Report will be submitted by March 15, 2014 demonstrating resolution of the Recommendations.
Los Angeles Mission College maintains its accreditation and will undergo a review by the ACCJC site evaluation team in April 2014 to verify Mission College’s progress.
¹What is Warning status?
When the accrediting commission finds that an institution has not responded adequately to previous recommendations from past evaluations or they do not feel that they have enough evidence to determine if the college meets every accreditation standard, the ACCJC may issue a sanction such as warning status and require an institution make improvements within two years. The college must file periodic reports and undergo site visits. During this period the institution remains accredited.
