Scottsdale Community College is a regionally-accredited institution through the Higher Learning Commission. In January, 2017, SCC successfully completed the HLC’s Open Pathway reaffirmation of accreditation process. The college submitted its assurance argument and evidence files, and hosted a Peer Review visit as part of this process. The purpose is to report and provide evidence of how we are meeting the criteria of accreditation.

The Higher Learning Commission, in a letter dated June 19, 2017, provided formal notification to SCC that its accreditation is continued, with the next Reaffirmation of Accreditation in 2026-27.
