Eligibility Requirements & Standards
Here you will find links to the Eligibility Requirements and the Accreditation Standards.
The Eligibility Requirements are the basic criteria that must be met by all institutions in order to be declared Candidates for Accreditation. Institutions must continue to meet the requirements after achieving initial accreditation.
The Accreditation Standards are statements of excellent practice and they are written broadly to apply to the diverse institutions accredited by ACCJC. The Standards were developed by the ACCJC membership and they are necessary conditions for high-quality education. They do not represent regulations or requirements of state or local agencies or the standards of other groups that may establish best practices or criteria for quality.
