Ohlone College accredited for next six years

FREMONT — Ohlone College has earned eight commendations for displaying “academic quality and institutional effectiveness,” according to a report that reaffirms its accreditation for the next six years.

Ohlone’s accreditation, which will run until 2020, ensures that it remains eligible for state funding and that its students can receive financial aid and transfer their credits to other colleges.

The accreditation report also recommended several improvements for the Fremont community college.

“The college does meet or exceed standards,” said Eliza Chan, spokeswoman for the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, which reviews 117 campuses statewide. “However, the whole idea behind accreditation is to have continuous improvement.”
