Grossmont College Accreditation




Welcome to the Grossmont College Accreditation Website



Follow-Up Report


Welcome to the Visiting Team Members



Grossmont College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges/Western Association of Schools and Colleges ( ACCJC/WASC).  The ACCJC/WASC is a regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States government. Accreditation by this agency signifies to the educational community and to the public at large that Grossmont College has met the standards of quality recognized as necessary for graduate competence and public funding.  Appropriate courses are fully accepted on transfer by the University of California, the California State University, and by private four-year colleges and universities.  Accreditation reports can be found on this website.

In addition, on this website you will find significant information regarding the people, processes, and tasks related to the reaffirmation of Grossmont College by the ACCJC/WASC. The visit by representatives of ACCJC/WASC to determine whether the college will be reaccredited is scheduled for Fall 2013.

The primary undertaking to prepare for the ACCJC/WASC visit is the preparation of a Self Evaluation of Educational Quality and Institutional Effectiveness Report (also known as a "self study"). The self evaluation report is based on historical and contemporary information about the operations of Grossmont College. It also contains analyses and recommendations regarding those operations, which demonstrate institutional commitment to nurture its strengths and ameliorate its weaknesses through appropriate actions.

Because of the need to involve varied constituencies and use a spectrum of sources to prepare a self evaluation report that fairly represents the past, present, and future of the college, this web site provides access to diverse resources important to the construction of this document. By using links to resources itemized on the left, you will develop an understanding of the nature of the task, as well as find avenues to use in helping to create a self study that offers a broad perspective on the heritage and prospects of Grossmont College.
