Third Party Comments

Bakersfield College's next self-review for reaffirmation of accreditation process will occur in 2025. After we submit our Institution Self-Evaluation Report (ISER), the next step will be to have an evaluation team revue our ISER and visit our campus. The campus, community and public may submit third-party comments relating to the compliance with Eligibility Requirements, Accreditation Standards, or Commission Policy to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC).

You are invited to submit comments to the ACCJC. A third-party comment may be submitted to ACCJC at any time. To ensure evaluation by the 2025 external evaluation team, third-party comments must have been received no later than five weeks before the evaluation team visit which was Fall 2025.
