Accreditation and Approvals


What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a review process by which institutions of higher education are evaluated to determine if educational programs meet or exceed defined standards of quality.

Why is Accreditation Necessary?

Accreditation is a verification that a college provides the kind of education that meets acceptable levels of quality. Before accreditation is granted, institutions must undergo a rigorous review and demonstrate that they meet the requirements set by an accrediting body related to course curriculum and offerings, admissions, faculty credentials, graduation, facilities, financial resources, and many other areas that ensure students are receiving what they have been promised by the institution.

Additionally, for students to receive federal student aid from the U.S. Department of Education for postsecondary study, the institution must be accredited by a “nationally recognized” accrediting agency. The U.S. Department of Education lists accrediting agencies that are determined to be reliable authorities in measuring the quality of the education and training of a program or institution.

LIBI will be hosting a site visit from a review team from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) during the week beginning April 3, 2023. In preparation for this review, LIBI would like to notify all members of the college community and the public of the opportunity and process for submission of third-party comments concerning LIBI’s ability to meet ACCJC’s Standards of Accreditation. Any member of the college community or public may submit a third-party comment by completing the Commission’s online third-party form.  Please note that, in order to ensure evaluation of applicable third-party comments by the peer review team, third-party comments should be received by the Commission staff no later than five weeks before the peer review team’s focused site visit.

Individuals who wish to make comments on the institutions that are undergoing review should use the third-party comment form and be sure to include their name, address, phone number, and email address.
