Accreditation Team to Visit WCC This October
A team of educators representing The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools will visit Washtenaw Community College Oct. 12-14 to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the College.
The visit is part of an accreditation process that occurs approximately every 10 years. The Commission has accredited WCC since 1973.
After its visit, the team will recommend a continuing status for the College to the Commission, which will make its final determination after reviewing the report. The visit is one of several activities the College must undergo as part of the accreditation process. For the past year and a half, WCC has conducted an extensive and exhaustive self-study to address requirements and criteria put forth by the Commission.
