Rigorous learning standards for our areas of study

Each of the Maricopa Community Colleges is individually and independently accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The HLC evaluates institutions against a set of criteria that must be met to maintain accreditation certification with the HLC.

Additionally, many of the areas of study offered at individual colleges are also separately accredited, licensed, or approved by other legitimate, industry-specific accreditation agencies. This ensures you, the student, that your area of study of choice also meets criteria that will facilitate the transfer to another institution to continue studies or will prove to potential employers that you have met certain career requirements.

By being accredited, we ensure integrity and quality by providing the highest level of learning standards possible.
