Spokane Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria
for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the
necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence
that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a
guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of
opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding an institution's accredited status by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities should be directed to the
administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
