The Middle States Commission on Higher Education removed Baltimore City Community College from probation on Friday after the college made progress in assessing student performance.

If the college had not made changes, the Middle States Commission could have yanked the school's accreditation.

Last July, Middle States said BCCC lacked any comprehensive method for assessing student achievement. The president, Carolane Williams, said in a statement that "the challenges from MSCHE have enabled BCCC to emerge as a stronger institution."

The action was one of only several problems the college has faced in the past year, including an overhaul of the college's board by Gov. Martin O'Malley.
