HLCIn January the San Diego campus was visited by a Higher Learning Commission peer reviewer as part of a multi-site visit. The multi-site visits occur every five years and are a part of the overall requirements for accreditation. San Diego was one of many campuses visited as part of the overall visit.

As part of the San Diego visit, the HLC peer reviewer met with faculty and students to learn more about the campus experience and quality of education. The reviewer provided positive feedback on his experience at the San Diego campus.

“He enjoyed speaking with education specialist officers, adjunct faculty and students,” says Diana Schriefer, director of the San Diego campus. “He was extremely impressed with the students. It was clear to him that students appreciate the support they receive from the staff, especially their academic advisors.”

One student shared his CC experience with the HLC peer reviewer, focusing on the personal attention he receives from his academic advisor. The student stated that his advisor emails him regularly to ask how he is progressing in his courses and informs him of upcoming courses to take during the next academic session.

“The student was happy to share that this personal attention keeps him on track to complete his degree and gives him confidence that his advisor knows all the ‘ins and outs’ of the degree program,” says Schriefer. “And other students agreed. This is a great example of the personalized advising students receive at the San Diego campus.”

Registration for the March Session began Feb. 15, so contact your academic advisor to start receiving this personal attention. Contact the San Diego campus today!
