Accreditation

AQIP to Open Pathways

Washington State Community College is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).  In the past, WSCC participated in the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) which required the college to plan and execute action projects that aligned with accreditation standards and expectations.  In 2018, WSCC was moved to the Open Pathway from AQIP.  The Open Pathway allows WSCC to complete a mid-cycle assurance review and then design and implement a Quality Initiative project that aligns with the institution’s needs and aspirations.
