(Harrisburg) -- A warning has been issued to HACC over the college's performance on three of 14 standards set by one of six regional higher education institution accrediting agencies.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education says the standards in question are institutional assessment, assessment of general education and assessment of student learning.

The commission's action is based on the Periodic Review Report submitted by HACC covering a five-year period from 2007-2012.

It stresses the school will remain accredited while on warning.

“I am confident that HACC will meet these requirements,” said HACC President John Sygielski. “The College is - and has been - addressing these issues and already has taken a number of steps toward the development and implementation of an organized and sustainable assessment process, including direct measures as required by the Commission.”

A deadline of September 1, 2013, has been set for documenting that the College has achieved compliance and can sustain compliance in these three standards.

HACC was the first community college in the region to be accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in 1967.
