Welcome to Riverside City College's accreditation website
Riverside City College is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. Accreditation as a system of voluntary, non-governmental self-regulation and peer review is unique to American educational institutions. It is a system by which an institution evaluates itself ​in accordance with standards of good practice regarding goals and objectives; the appropriateness, sufficiency, and utilization of resources; the usefulness, integrity, and effectiveness of its processes; and the​​​ extent to which it is achieving its intended outcomes. It is a process by which accreditors provide students, the public, and each other with assurances of institutional integrity, quality, and effectiveness. Accreditation ​​is intended to encourage institutions to plan for institutional improvement in quality and effectiveness.​
Each institution affiliated with the Accrediting commission for Community and Junior Colleges accepts the obligation to undergo a cycle of periodic evaluation through institutional self evaluation and professional peer review. The heart of this obligation is conducting a rigorous self evaluation during which an institution appraises itself against the Accreditation Standards in terms of its stated institutional purposes.
