Institutional accreditation is a voluntary initiative that includes a comprehensive examination of the college’s mission and how it is manifested in its programs and use of resources. Accreditation serves as a way to share with students and the public that St. Louis Community College meets quality standards set by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), an organization committed to enhancing higher education.
St. Louis Community College has been fully accredited by the HLC since 1966, and hosted its last comprehensive site visit in 2008. We are currently preparing for our next comprehensive visit in 2017-18 through the Open Pathway process.
Visit the Higher Learning Commission website for more information about the Assumed Practices and Criteria for Accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission.
