Accreditation

Kellogg Community College is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Institutional Actions Council of the HLC voted June 18, 2012, to continue the College’s accreditation with the next comprehensive evaluation to be set in 2021-22. The college was previously reaccredited by the HLC during the spring semester of 2002.

Kellogg Community College President Dennis Bona called the college’s reaccreditation wonderful news.

“We have many to thank for contributing to this achievement, including our students, faculty and staff, but perhaps most notably the community leaders who stepped up and provided both written and oral testimonials to how valuable an asset the college is to the communities we serve and the life-changing impact we have on the lives of our citizens,” he said. “On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the community we serve and, most importantly, our students, I extend sincere appreciation to all who contributed to making this reaccreditation process a success.”
