The following assessment resources will be employed by the college:
McCall College is registered with the Idaho State Board of Education as a Proprietary School in the State of Idaho. Validation of the education is in the form of certificates and other credentials. Programs, courses, and workshops that assist the local community are authorized. McCall College Foundation Inc., operating as McCall College, is authorized by the Internal Revenue Service to be a 501(c)3 non-profit, private operating foundation. McCall College is an approved site of higher education for the Idaho Department of Labor and the Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
McCall College does not have regionally accredited programs. Most Professional Technical courses are not designed for transfer to any other institution. These courses are designed for workforce development and skill development for local employment opportunities. However, some ProTech courses may be constructed according to accreditation guidelines. Check with your individual instructor. McCall College will seek regional accreditation as soon as we are eligible. Any courses that may be considered for future accreditation is portfolio-based so that work may be assessed by other colleges for the possibility of transfer credit. We encourage students to inquire with other colleges to determine transfer criteria of any particular course. It is the student's responsibility to determine if course work completed at McCall College will be accepted as credit at any other accredited college or university.
Some McCall College courses may be eligible for the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). A course syllabus will define the appropriate CLEP exam that may allow a student to write a CLEP exam for course credit. CLEP credits may be transferable to a receiving college or university. The student is required to confirm that CLEP credits are eligible for transfer prior to taking a CLEP exam.
McCall College is working with other colleges and universities to offer accredited courses on our campus. If a college or university accepts a course for transfer, any of these accredited courses will be recorded on the accredited college or university transcript.
Accreditation is the process of validating the educational processes of a college. A new college must prove that the educational processes are appropriate and the mission of the college is being fulfilled. We welcome students who seek to help McCall College prove its educational abilities.
Catalogs, bulletins, course, and fee schedules are not to be considered binding contracts between McCall College and students. The college reserves the right at any time, without notice, to act upon the following:
McCall College does not discriminate on the basis of race/ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, or age in the administration of any of our employment, educational programs, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, recreational, and other college-administered programs.
McCall College welcomes people with disabilities. The institution adheres to section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act in making reasonable modifications of policies, practices and procedures to ensure that no one is excluded from, or denied the benefits of, educational opportunities solely on the basis of disability. Any concerns about access to education at McCall College should be directed to the Director of Student Affairs.
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act, public law 101-542, provides that institutions of higher education disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures to current and prospective students and employees.

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.
