Welcome to SRJC’s Accreditation website!
Every seven years, institutions accredited through the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges/Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC/WASC) agree to undergo a comprehensive review to verify the degree to which they meet the Commission's Standards. The review process also validates that institutions are engaged in sustainable efforts to improve educational quality and institutional effectiveness. The review begins when the institution conducts a self-evaluation using ACCJC's Standards as its evaluative framework. The outcome is expressed in the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER), which is submitted to ACCJC for use by the peer review team. The ISER provides narrative and evaluation, supported by evidence, to affirm the institution meets the accreditation Standards. The ISER also describes the institution's plans for improvement and contains a Quality Focus Essay (QFE) that discusses quality-focused projects the institution will engage in to improve student learning and achievement.
An external peer review team examined Santa Rosa Junior College's ISER and conducted a virtual site visit from February 28 to March 3, 2022. ACCJC also conducted a Special Fiscal Monitoring site visit during that same timeframe. For the comprehensive review, team members selected for their expertise from member institutions wrote a team report stating the team's findings related to the college's compliance with ACCJC's Standards.
