Recent ACCSC Accreditation Visits to North-West College Yield Outstanding Results
Visits Underscore North-West College's Commitment to Providing Quality Education
The Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) recently visited North-West College's (NWC) Santa Ana and Long Beach campuses as part of their accreditation renewal process. As the institutional accrediting agency for NWC, ACCSC sent a team to inspect every aspect of the campuses' operations.
"These visits are a great external validation of NWC's commitment to remaining totally compliant with our regulators, which is one of our Core Values," Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza explained. "These results also highlight our dedication to creating impactful learning environments that meet the most rigorous standards set forth by national accrediting agencies like ACCSC."
As part of their visit, ACCSC Team Members also conducted a survey of North-West College students on both the Long Beach and Santa Ana campuses. The survey asked students to rank everything from Admissions and Financial Aid to instructors and facilities at NWC.
"The survey results were outstanding," Corporate Director of Academic Operations Brooke Allen shared. "These numbers offer even more evidence of our strong commitment to our students."
When asked if they would recommend North-West College to a friend, a full 92 percent of Long Beach students and 93 percent of Santa Ana students said they would. In addition, 94 percent of Long Beach students and 96 percent of Santa Ana students surveyed said they felt good about their decision to attend NWC.
"Our students understand that every Team Member at North-West College works hard to ensure they have the skills and training they need to succeed," Allen said. "These survey results show that our students are glad to be changing their lives with the help of North-West College."
