Washtenaw Community College
Higher Learning Commission Self-Study

Accreditation is a voluntary peer review process that provides a framework by which colleges and universities critically evaluate their purposes, processes, and procedures in light of specified criteria. The accreditation process is designed to promote self-evaluation, and ensures quality and institutional improvement.

An institutional accrediting agency evaluates and accredits the entire institution, including evaluation of such things as:

  • Educational programs and services
  • Governance and administration
  • Financial stability and integrity
  • Institutional resources
  • Student learning
  • Institutional effectiveness
  • Institutional engagement with its constituencies
