The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges Takes Action on Los Angeles City College


At its June meeting, The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges acted to place
the institution on probation. The Commission will require that the College submit a Follow-up Report by March 2010 and will reassess the College’s status in June. The accredited status of the institution remains in effect during this period.

Los Angeles City College is committed to serving one of the most diverse communities in the nation and providing access to a comprehensive educational and support system that empowers students to succeed.  “We have been addressing these issues over the past year and our College accreditation team has put together an action plan to address the specifics of the Commission’s recommendations. For our students, it’s business as usual. We will continue to serve and support our students and we are even more committed to their success,” said Dr. Jamillah Moore, President of Los Angeles City College.  The college will hold an open forum on July 16, 2009 at 12:30pm in the faculty and staff center to inform the campus and the community on the next steps in addressing the issues identified by the Commission and to answer any questions about the process.
