The accreditation process is a seven-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, as well as a Midterm Report in the third year following a comprehensive review. Every seven years, colleges undergo a comprehensive self-study process culminating in an institutional self-evaluation report and a visit by a peer review team.
