SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A college regulator violated the law by failing to give California’s largest community college a fair hearing before deciding to terminate its accreditation, according to a tentative court ruling on Friday.

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges had planned to withdraw accreditation from City College of San Francisco, citing a lack of financial accountability and other longstanding problems, none directly related to educational quality.

Lost accreditation would trigger funding cuts that would shutter the school, San Francisco’s only community college, with more than 50 academic programs and over 100 occupational disciplines, from nursing to culinary arts and aircraft mechanics.

The city of San Francisco sued, and a judge put the accreditation decision on hold pending a trial that took place last year.
