The accreditation process is a six-year cycle during which the college is continuously engaged in the institutional review and submits regular reports to ACCJC including Annual Reports, Annual Fiscal Reports, and a Midterm Report in the third year following a comprehensive review. Every six years, colleges undergo a comprehensive self-study process culminating in a self-study report and a visit by an evaluation team.
