ACCJC Removes Santa Barbara City College from Warning Status

July 9, 2013

On July 3, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) notified Santa Barbara City College that the college has been removed from warning status for being deficient in meeting the governance-related accreditation standards.

The college has remained fully accredited since it was placed on warning in 2012, which is the lowest level of accreditation sanction, and it did not apply to the college’s academic and student programs.

SBCC will be required to file a followup report by March 14, 2014 on full and sustained resolution of three ACCJC recommendations as outlined in its July 3 letter to the college. (http://sbcc.edu/accreditation)   The report will be followed by a visit of ACCJC representatives.

 SBCC will receive its next comprehensive evaluation by ACCJC in fall 2015.  Every six years, community colleges receive a site visit from ACCJC for reaffirmation of accreditation.  SBCC’s last comprehensive visit took place in November 2009 at which time the college received nine commendations.
