(Victorville)–This week Victor Valley College received official notification of its accredited status from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC). The college was visited by the Commission in 2012, and at its January 2013 meeting, the Commission acted to continue the college’s Probationary status with a Follow-Up Report due on October 15, 2013.
Acknowledging that the college has made significant advances, the Commission action is a powerful indicator that the college has fundamentally addressed the recommendations made by Commission. Victor Valley College continues to be accredited, and all degrees and certificates and course credits are transferable to the other college and universities and to the workplace.
After being informed of the Commission’s decision, Board of Trustees President Lorrie Denson said, “I am encouraged by this report, and my fellow trustees and I assure the community that we will continue to serve the students of the High Desert and beyond with an emphasis on excellence and success.”
Superintendent/President Christopher C. O’Hearn, Ph.D. added, “The findings underscore and highlight the enormous effort by administration, faculty, staff, students, the VVC Foundation, and other community leaders to examine every aspect of the college for continuous quality improvement. I am very pleased and thankful to all who have brought us to this pivotal place in the history of Victor Valley College. We have until October 15 to refine our response to the Commission. I look forward to this opportunity.”
