Accreditation reporting is a continuous process. Throughout the seven-year accreditation cycle, timelines for report preparation, development, and submission may overlap. For a visual representation of the overlapping report timelines, please click on the Accreditation Reports Timeline.
2015 Evaluation Cycle
In response to the ISER 2015, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges took action to reaffirm accreditation and required the College to submit a Follow-Up Report in October 2016. A Midterm Report was submitted to the Commission in March 2019. In this cycle, Palomar also opened two new centers, each requiring a Substantive Change Proposal.
(In 2016, Palomar College moved from a six-year to a seven-year accreditation cycle.)
Annual Accreditation Reports include 3-year data for student counts, course and program counts, institutional set standards, transfer and completion rates, and licensure examination and job placement rates.
2009 Evaluation Cycle
In response to the ISER 2009, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges took action to issue warning with continued accreditation status and required the College to submit a Follow-Up Report in October 2010, and again in October 2011. In June 2011, the Commission removed the warning and reaffirmed accreditation. A Midterm Report was submitted to the Commission in March 2012. In this cycle, Palomar also submitted a Substantive Change Proposal for Distance Education.
