2023 Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER) Review Cycle

Compton College is preparing for the next accreditation cycle, following a timeline for the 2023 Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER).

Compton College Institutional Self-Evlauation Timeline, 2022-2024

The self-evaluation process follows a six-year cycle and gives the district an opportunity to reflect on the college’s current institutional conditions, achievements, and goals, and to thoroughly examine the quality and effectiveness of programs, services, and operations.

The ISER represents the collective efforts of the campus community, including faculty, classified professionals, administrators, and students. The campus community had the opportunity to provide feedback through an online form, and that input was incorporated into the final version.

Third-Party Comment

You may also provide a third-party comment directly to the ACCJC. A third-party comment assists the Commission as it considers applications for candidacy, accreditation, or reaffirmation of accreditation. When an institution is undergoing a review, the Commission requires the institution’s chief executive officer to notify the campus community and public of the opportunity for submission of third-party comments and the process for doing so. Any member of the college community or public may submit a third-party comment by completing the Commission’s online third-party comment form, available via the institution’s website or ACCJC’s website. In order to ensure evaluation of applicable third-party comments by the peer review team, third-party comments should be received by the Commission staff no later than five weeks before the peer review team visit. Institutions will be provided an opportunity to review applicable third-party comments.
