The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, at its meeting January 7-10, 2014, reviewed the Follow-Up Report submitted by El Camino College and the report of the evaluation team that visited November 14, 2013. The Commission took action to remove Warning.
The El Camino College Accreditation Self-Evaluation Team is in place and ready to provide leadership for this important process.
