Accreditation

Central Carolina Community College is committed to providing high-quality educational opportunities to our students. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that the educational programs provided by an institution of higher learning meet acceptable levels of quality (US Dept. of Education). All curricular programs at CCCC are accredited through our regional accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Some programs have also been granted discipline-specific accreditations through national accrediting bodies. For a complete list of program-specific accreditations currently held by CCCC, click here.

Demonstrating institutional quality assurance through accreditation is an ongoing process. At CCCC, we are committed to promoting an institutional "Culture of Evidence" to encourage continuous improvement college-wide.

The college is committed to teaching and learning excellence. Every degree program includes a minimum of fifteen semester hours credit of general education as prescribed by the North Carolina Community College System Curriculum Standards, and CCCC believes that every degree graduate should successfully master general education competencies regardless of the degree discipline.
