Welcome to Berkeley City College’s Accreditation Website. According to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), accreditation is the process for evaluating and assuring the quality of education used by the American higher education community. The accreditation standards clearly reflect standards of good practice. The Standards were crafted by peers (faculty, staff, administrators, and members of the public) and reflect minimum conditions of quality and
services for accredited institutions.

Maintaining an accredited status is a collective responsibility of the members of the Berkeley City College community. Berkeley City College will have a site visit March 9-12, 2015.  Through this website you will find our Accreditation Self Evaluation, our Actionable Improvement Plans, as well as evidence validating how Berkeley City College meets the Eligibility Requirements and Accreditation Standards. While BCC continuously strives to improve our quality teaching and learning, you are always welcome to join the process by making informal comment in person or via Suggestion Boxes located on campus, or formal comment using the Third Party Comment Form.  During our Site Visit, we will be holding open forums for comments on Wednesday, March 11th between 12:15-1:15 p.m.  and again that evening from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in our Auditorium.

Looking forward to a wonderful Spring visit.

Dr. Deborah Budd
