SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — One of California's largest community colleges has another chance to hold onto its accreditation and stay open.

The private, federally sanctioned agency that certifies colleges in the west for quality announced Wednesday that it has adopted a new policy that would allow City College of San Francisco to apply for another two years to show it is meeting accreditation standards.

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges had planned to strip City College of its accreditation this July 31 because of what it said were intractable financial and governance problems. Because unaccredited schools are ineligible for state and federal funding, the revocation would have likely forced the school to close.

The commission was under pressure from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other elected officials to reverse the decision.
