GCC secures accreditation for 7 more years

Posted: Jun 15, 2018 4:14 PM Updated:

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges commends GCC on a job well done reaffirming accreditation for seven years.

GCC was recognized for exemplary performance in assessing student learning, being the only Gov Guam agency designated low-risk for 16 consecutive years, innovative initiatives that improve college success, and the President's leadership to pursue grants and build the first LEED Gold certified building....

President Mary Okada said, "GCC'S robust fiscal planning and astute fiscal management has allowed it to maintain student tuition costs since the fall of 2011 a key component to student access and student success."

In fact, WASC gave no other recommendations for improving GCC. The Midterm report won't be due until March 2022, and the next comprehensive review during the spring term of 2025.
