Cuesta College Retains Its Accreditation

CuestaCollegeCuesta College has made significant progress with the regional accrediting agency that evaluates two-year colleges in California and remains accredited.

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges removed the college from show-cause status and placed it on warning, which is the least severe level of sanction.

In a letter dated Feb. 11, 2013, the commission noted that the college seems poised to demonstrate that it will fully resolve the remaining issues in the next few months.

Furthermore, the commission found that Cuesta College has fully resolved most of the deficiencies that had been identified in the 2012 commission action letter, and recognizes that the college has implemented its integrated planning process, but needs more time to assess its effectiveness. The announcement was made yesterday.
