On March 15, 2020, the College submitted a Midterm Report, which was approved at the end of June 2020. The College’s next comprehensive review will occur in the spring term of 2023, and preparations for the self-study will commence in August 2020. The Accreditation Steering Committee oversees the process and writing of all reports.
LAVC embarked on its previous self-evaluation in 2014. College constituents worked in teams to prepare a report to address how well the College was meeting the ACCJC standards. In March 2016, a team of evaluators visited LAVC to verify the accuracy of the College's report and recommended ways to improve. Based on the visiting evaluation team's report and review by the ACCJC at its June 2016 meeting, the Commission reaffirmed LAVC's accredited status, requiring a follow-up report in 18 months to verify progress on the team's recommendations for improvement. Eighteen months later, the college submitted their follow-up report and the Commission acted to find compliance and reaffirm accreditation for the remainder of the cycle.
