Accreditation Compliance (SACS)
The Houston Community College District is accredited as one body by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the associate degree. SACS is one of six nationally regional accreditation agencies recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission oversees accreditation of colleges in eleven southern states.

The Houston Community College District was first admitted into membership in SACS on December 19, 1977. Accreditation was granted provisionally and yearly for five years until a full Self-Study was completed and reaffirmation of accreditation was received for the ten years following December 17, 1982. HCC received its last reaffirmation of accreditation in June 2012.
