Accreditation 2020

El Camino College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), a division of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  Colleges must meet 21 eligibility requirements to be accredited by the ACCJC and then also meet standards that address the college’s mission, academic quality, student learning and support services, resources, and governance. Colleges undergo a peer review process to ensure that they continue to meet the eligibility requirements and standard. The review process occurs on a six-year cycle and involves a comprehensive Institutional Self-Evaluation Report prepared by college faculty, staff, and students followed by a campus visit from peer reviewers.  El Camino College was fully accredited in 2016. The next full review will occur in fall 2020.  The college is currently preparing for the ACCJC visit.
