Like many colleges, Skyline is evaluated regularly to make sure it meets rigorous educational standards. Accreditation is the process for evaluating and assuring the quality of education used by the American higher education community. It is a quality assurance process in which institutions set standards for good practice, conduct peer-based evaluations of institutions and confer accredited status on institutions.

Skyline College is approved by the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the recognized local accrediting agency that is affiliated with the Federation of Regional Accrediting Commissions of Higher Education.

The Office of Private Postsecondary Education also approves Skyline College to offer courses to U.S. Veterans for collection of veterans' benefits. To review the accreditation reports and approval, please contact the Office of the President at (650) 738-4111.
