Los Angeles Chiropractic College Placed on Probation by CCE

Program is in significant non-compliance with the CCE Standards & Policies

According to an announcement from the Council on Chiropractic Accreditation the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (“the Program”) at Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier, California was placed on Probation.

According to the release, the Council took this action because of areas of concern related to planning, program assessment, student admissions and reporting of student performance data. On February 10, 2017, the Council placed the Program on Probation. At the same time, the Council notified the Program that the decision would not become final until after 20 days following receipt of the notification letter, during which time the Program could exercise its right to appeal, since the Council’s procedures define probation as an appealable decision.

The Program did not appeal within the allotted time and thus, the probation decision becomes final and public.

LACC provided the following comment to the CCE in response to the sanction:

Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) at Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU) greatly appreciates the insightful feedback provided throughout the accreditation process by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE). LACC has found CCE’s input to be invaluable in the quest for continuous improvement. The process has been collegial and instructive, and LACC is working diligently to address the noted concerns and make the needed improvements as quickly as possible. We welcome the CCE back to campus in Fall 2017 to verify progress as we strive to meet and exceed all requirements.
