Modesto Junior College is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) through the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) and has a full accreditation status.  The college's next Accreditation report will be a mid-term report submitted the ACCJC in fall of 2014.

Modesto Junior College students who complete appropriate lower division courses are given full credit upon transfer to the California State Universities, the University of California, and other four-year colleges as well as universities with which the college maintains articulation agreements.  Modesto Junior College is approved by the State Department of Education for training veterans and is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant, alien students.

Accreditation is an institutional priority, and college committees continue to work diligently to address the Accrediting Commission's standards and expectations. The ultimate goal involves creating a stronger, more effective college for our students and our community.  Modesto Junior College stands committed to student learning, educational excellence, and institutional effectiveness. Our college is therefore dedicated to a comprehensive, integrated and continual cycle of planning that uses the collection and evaluation of data, student learning outcomes and program review to measure and improve all aspects of student learning and student services at Modesto Junior College.
