What is Accreditation?
Welcome to the South Mountain Community College website, dedicated to the reaffirmation of accreditation by the college’s accrediting body — the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Accreditation is a review process used in higher education to scrutinize colleges, universities and educational programs for quality assurance and institutional improvement. Most recently, in 2019-2020 South Mountain submitted an assurance argument, supported by detailed artifacts or evidentiary documents, to the HLC. In February 2020, the college hosted HLC representatives who engaged in a campus visit to verify claims and validate our continued accreditation. Following their visit, the college was fully reaffirmed for the maximum ten years. Read more here. https://www.southmountaincc.edu/news/2020/smcc-earns-maximum-10-year-re…
