Great Basin College will receive a site visit from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities in September as part of the regular cycle for reaffirmation of accreditation.
GBC’s accreditation dates to 1974 and was last reaffirmed in 2013. This cycle’s visit will be from Sept. 28-30.
Regional accreditation recognizes institutional quality, effectiveness and sustainability in fulfilling the institution’s mission.
As part of the process, GBC invites public comment on its qualifications for accreditation. Signed written comments should be sent to the commission and will be shared with the institution, the evaluation committee and the commission itself.
Comments are due no later than Sept. 1 and should be mailed to Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities Attn: Third Party Comment, 8060 165th Avenue NE, Suite 100, Redmond, WA 98052.
