Accreditation

Higher Learning Commission Mark of Affiliation

On February 26, 2015 the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools placed Pima Community College On Notice

The HLC is one of several regional and national organizations that accredit institutions of higher education such as PCC. Notice means that the College is in compliance with the HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation, but is at risk of being out of compliance with the Criteria for Accreditation and the Core Components. 

The College remains fully accredited while On Notice which does not affect PCC's ability to offer financial aid to our students.  Also, we do not anticipate any change in a student’s ability to transfer courses.

The Accreditation FAQ provides additional information on accreditation, PCC's current status, financial aid and course transfer.
