Accreditation Reports

TMCC is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

In 2010, NWCCU adopted revised accreditation standards and a new seven-year accreditation cycle with Year One, Mid-Cycle and Year Seven Self-Evaluation reports. The Commission had previously accredited colleges and universities on a ten-year cycle, with two-year focused interim and five-year interim reports, as the Northwest Association of Colleges and Universities division of the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges (NASC).

In 2002, the division split from NASC to become the NWCCU.
