HLC Accreditation - Reaffirmation of Accreditation

The HLC Team will visit SCC January 30-31, 2017

Scottsdale Community College is a regionally-accredited institution through the Higher Learning Commission. Every ten years the college completes a comprehensive self-study process leading to continued accreditation. The self-study process is designed to identify strengths, areas for improvement, and required follow-up reporting.

In 2007, Scottsdale Community College completed a self-study report and was visited by the Higher Learning Commission. The Commission renewed Scottsdale Community Colleges accreditation; the college's next comprehensive site visit by the Commission is currently scheduled for January 30-31, 2017.
