SFCC will host a Peer Review Team from the Higher Learning Commission on Monday and Tuesday, February 17 – 18. This is the site visit required as part of our Reaffirmation of Accreditation. A series of meetings will be held in order for the team to verify our compliance with the HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation. See SFCC-CQR-Final-Schedule. After the visit, the Peer Review Team will submit a report to SFCC and the Commission with their findings. This will help to determine the future accreditation pathway for the College.
