Rochester Community and Technical College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), a regional accreditation agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education. Accreditation affirms to the public that the College currently meets HLC standards for higher education and can reasonably be expected to meet those standards in the future.

After an April 2017 site visit, the HLC officially confirmed the College's ten-year reaffirmation of accreditation on August 7th, 2017.

The College follows the HLC Standard Pathway for accreditation. During the spring 2019 semester, the College will host an HLC team for a follow-up visit on assessment of student learning. For more information, feel free to contact RCTC's Vice President of Academic Affairs.
