PCC removed from sanction by accreditor

March 9, 2017

PCC was notified this morning by the Higher Learning Commission, its accrediting organization, that it has been removed from sanction after demonstrating it is no longer at risk of failing to meet the HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation.

The College was notified in an Action Letter dated today from HLC President Barbara Gellman-Danley. “During its meeting on February 23, 2017, the Board removed the sanction of Notice from the College. This action is effective as of the date the action was taken. The Board determined that the removal of the sanction was warranted based on evidence provided by the College, including the Notice Report, the report of the visiting team, the staff analysis of the sanction, and the College’s responses to these reports,” the letter said.

In a message to the College community, Chancellor Lee D. Lambert said, “This is wonderful news for current and prospective students. Removal from Notice is a crystal-clear indication to students that their school is operating and will continue to operate at a high standard.

“Pima County residents can rest assured we are an institution that is worthy of their support,” Chancellor Lambert added.
