Accreditation

While many academic agencies accredit particular programs of study, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and other regional accrediting agencies are responsible for assuring that colleges and universities meet certain standards in terms of their missions, operations, and activities in teaching and student learning, discovery and promotion of knowledge, and service. Accreditation is an assurance to the public that an institution is properly prepared to do its job. On a more practical level, the HLC and other accrediting agencies have been designated as the "gatekeepers" for federal funds in higher education. Accredited schools are eligible for many kinds of federal support.

CCCC is accredited through The Higher Learning Commission (HLC), North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).
