(IVC granted full accreditation)…It was announced by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
Imperial Valley College was removed from its Accreditation warning status. IVC President/Superintendent Victor Jaime said while the news was not unexpected, they were thrilled to have all accreditation sanctions lifted. He said it was a tribute to the very hard work of lots of people since 2013. The action comes as the result of a campus accrediting team visit this spring and official action by the full commission at its meeting June 3-5. The collage was notified of the action Monday. IVC had been on Warning as the result of a comprehensive accreditation evaluation conducted on campus in March 2013. The status is the mildest sanction that is issued and came amid serious fiscal issues that had hit the college in the aftermath of the state budget crisis. During the period IVC remained fully accredited and was given two years to resolve the commission’s concerns.
