Skyline College Application for Reaffirmation of Accreditation – July 2007
The Accreditation Self Study process began in Fall 2005 and the College community dialogued, investigated, collaborated, and wrote to reflect and document how the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) standards were met.  The Accreditation Steering Committee and Writing Teams and the College has completed its work.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed their time and efforts.  Skyline College is confident that this self study will provide a comprehensive voice representative of all areas of the campus community.

Accrediting Commission for Community & Junior Colleges (ACCJC)



Skyline College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior College of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, 10 Commercial Blvd., Suite 204, Novato, CA 94949, 415.506.0234, an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.

Skyline College is approved by the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the recognized local accrediting agency which is affiliated with the Federation of Regional Accrediting Commissions of Higher Education. The Office of Private Postsecondary Education also approves Skyline College to offer courses to U.S. Veterans for collection of veterans' benefits. The accreditation reports and approval are available for review in the office of the President.

Each institution affiliated with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges accepts the obligation to undergo periodic evaluation through self study and professional peer review. The heart of this obligation is the conducting of a rigorous self study during which an institution appraises itself in terms of its stated purposes. A Comprehensive Self Study is required every six years following initial accreditation.
