The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) is an independent non-profit organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). It is the regional authority on educational quality and institutional effectiveness of higher-education institutions in the seven-state Northwest region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. It fulfills its mission by establishing accreditation criteria and evaluation procedures by which institutions are reviewed. Clover Park Technical College first received accreditation through NWCCU in December 1999.
