A Message from the President:

BCCC is accredited and now enrolling.

On June 26, 2014, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) placed Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) on warning for insufficient evidence that the institution is in compliance with four of its 14 Standards for accreditation. MSCHE issued a public statement on July 3, 2014.
The Commission, in taking this action, has been emphatic in noting that BCCC remains accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

We are focused on providing sufficient evidence to satisfy the Commission’s concerns; in the meantime, BCCC remains open and fully accredited. Credits earned by students enrolled at BCCC will still count toward degrees, certificates and transfer. There is no change to financial aid eligibility or veterans educational benefits. We are currently enrolling for the Fall 2014 semester and are encouraging students to continue to pursue their dreams at BCCC.

We take these matters very seriously and have established a structure to ensure that the institution is being effective in accomplishing its mission: to produce college-and career-ready individuals to serve the city, the state and beyond.

I am confident that BCCC will satisfy the Commission’s requirement. I assure you that BCCC will continue to provide quality education and training programs, and resources to the over 18,000 students that it serves.
As always, you may contact us at 410-462-8300 or e-mail accreditation@bccc.edu with any concerns that you might have throughout this process. You may also find more information by reviewing the FAQs .
