The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) reaffirmed Blue Mountain Community College’s (BMCC) accreditation status, following an extensive review that concluded in June 2015.

The college is approved by both the State and Federal Veteran’s Administration to offer education and training under the various public laws pertaining to financial aid to veterans.

Accreditation is a process that allows a college to examine its practices, policies, and services, thereby determining how successfully it fulfills its mission and goals. The process evolves over several stages of self-study, with each stage culminating in a report (1-year, 3-year, 5-year, and 7-year) for review by peer evaluators representing the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). Collectively, these reports address the ways in which the college meets the NWCCU Accreditation Standards and Policies.
