Accreditation is the process for evaluating and assuring the quality of education used by the American higher education community. It is a uniquely American quality assurance process through which institutions collectively set standards for good practice, conduct peer-based evaluations of institutions, on a regular basis, confer accredited status on institutions, and make the results of accreditation review of institutions known to the public. Through accreditation, the higher education community shoulders the responsibility for monitoring the quality of the programs and services or member institutions. Agencies that develop and apply standards are called accrediting commissions. Accrediting commissions were created by a collective group that wished to engage in the quality review and assurance process, and those institutions were and are referred to as the member institutions of a commission.
Institutional Accreditation is public certification that institutions meet defined standards of quality and responsibility.
Yuba College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, 10 Commercial Blvd., Suite 204, Novato, CA 94949, (415) 506-0234, an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.
