Commission reaffirms Gavilan College’s accreditation

Gavilan College will continue with its accredited status through 2019, when another comprehensive evaluation is due

At its June meeting, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, reviewed the follow-up report submitted by Gavilan College in March, and affirmed Gavilan's continuing accredited status through 2019.

Gavilan College president Steve Kinsella received a letter from the commission that reads, in part: "Based upon the College Follow-Up Report and evidence submitted, the Commission finds that Gavilan College has addressed College Recommendations 1 and 2 from the last comprehensive evaluation and has fully resolved the remaining deficiencies…" 

As part of the ongoing accreditation cycle, Gavilan College will next complete and submit a regular midterm report in March 2016. Gavilan's next comprehensive evaluation will be submitted in 2019.

All Gavilan College accreditation documents, including self-studies, midterm reports, follow-up reports, and letters from the accrediting commission, are posted online here.
