Foothill College is preparing for its upcoming accreditation in 2017.

Foothill College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), Western Association of Schools and Colleges. This organization is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.

Foothill College's accreditation was reaffirmed by the ACCJC in January of 2012 following the completion of a comprehensive self-study in August of 2011 and site evaluation team visit in October 2011.

The college maintains its accreditation by fulfilling criteria that are determined by the ACCJC. Throughout its continuous six-year review cycle, Foothill College conducts and publishes several review instruments, including an annual report, annual fiscal report, midterm report, comprehensive institutional self-study, and an evaluation review by a team of peers.

Foothill College views accreditation as an ongoing process and invites community members, students, faculty and staff to be informed and participate.
