Accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission
Muskegon Community College has been accredited or approved by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) since 1929. Accreditation is important because it assures the public of the integrity and quality of MCC’s programs and services, enhances the College’s ability to hire highly qualified faculty and staff, enables students to obtain financial aid and veterans services, and allows the College to receive funding through federal grants.
MCC Reaccredited by HLC Through 2031
On January 29, 2021, the Higher Learning Commission reaffirmed MCC’s accreditation for another 10 years.
The Assessment Committee is leading the effort to build upon and improve MCC’s assessment efforts with input from the MCC community. Our talented and hard-working faculty members are doing great work in assessment as they continue to gather data, submit reports, and make changes to improve student learning.
The Accreditation Process
College and universities are evaluated every ten years and/or periodically as necessary to maintain accreditation.
