Accreditation

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. In 2019-2020 South Mountain will submit an assurance argument, supported by detailed artifacts or evidentiary documents, to the HLC. In February 2020, the college will host HLC representatives as they engage in a campus visit to verify claims and validate our continued accreditation. This website will document related work and communicate with the campus and community about this important endeavor. Please visit frequently to stay engaged and informed.

South Mountain Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a member of the North Central Association (NCA).
