Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)
The Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) is a quality-based accreditation process. With AQIP, a college conducts its own self-assessment, sets its own goals and measures itself on how well it is making progress toward achieving the goals. A site visit is conducted every seven years by an outside team of two to three peer reviewers. More Info

FVTC AQIP Systems Portfolio
The Systems Portfolio explains the major systems the College employs to accomplish its mission and objectives. Compiled with the first four years of AQIP affiliation, this 100+ page report responds to specific questions related to each of the nine AQIP categories. The intent is to relate the FVTC story clearly and concisely with annual updates.
FVTC submitted its first Systems Portfolio in October 2006.
FVTC submitted its second Systems Portfolio in October 2010.
FVTC AQIP Systems Appraisal Feedback Report
Based upon the Systems Portfolio, a trained external team of
educators reads and assesses the processes and performance presented by
the College. Each response is rated as based upon its strength in moving
the College toward continuous improvement and systems thinking, or as
an opportunity for improvement.
Reaffirmation of Accreditation occurs every seven years and is based upon the overall pattern of improvement.
