Cuesta accreditation status is (mostly) resolved

BY NEW TIMES STAFF

It may not have been double-secret probation, but Cuesta College has been operating under serious scrutiny since 2010, when it was first put on, well, accreditation probation.

Representatives from the school announced Feb. 14 that Cuesta will keep its accreditation after a year-long scare with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. The organization placed Cuesta in “show cause” status last year, forcing president Gil Stork and his staff to prove it deserved accreditation.

Cuesta’s response apparently proved sufficient, as the accreditation commission upgraded its status to under warning—the least serious of three action levels.

“I want our students, their families, and community members to know that we are on target to resolve any remaining deficiencies listed by the commission,” Stork said in an official release. “Cuesta remains accredited.”

The accreditation commission will remove Cuesta from warning status when it can document resolution of the fix list that agency staffers sent the school’s administration in 2012.
