You should complete this process if you wish to be recognized as an officially accredited location of CCD. The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is the accrediting body for CCD and requires this designation before you can offer half or more of the courses that are part of any CCD degree or certificate that has at least 16 credits. Please submit all materials electronically via email to TLC@ccd.edu. Once all materials are submitted to CCD, we will conduct an internal review to ensure all requirements are met.
CCD will then submit the formal Additional Location Application to HLC. This process may take six months to a year, and requires considerable collaboration in preparation. The process includes a site visit from an accreditor, interviews with your faculty, students and staff, and an examination of materials submitted as part of this application. You will be notified by CCD once this designation has been approved by HLC.
