Must look at continuing and adult education programs differently than SACS.  And from this story, it would appear that San Diego Continuing Education has accreditation seperate from the communty college. From Pat Flynn writing in The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Accreditation reaffirmed for adult ed program
San Diego Continuing Education, the adult education arm of the San Diego Community College District, has had its accreditation reaffirmed for a six-year term.

The institution received notification Thursday from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

“Maintaining accreditation is extremely important because it validates the high level of instruction and service students can expect to receive when they come to our institution,” said Anthony E. Beebe, president of San Diego Continuing Education.

The accreditation process involves a self study in which the organization prepares a variety of reports for the accrediting body, followed by a visit from a team of evaluators.

Continuing Education serves more than 100,000 students served per academic year at six main campuses in San Diego. Noncredit classes are available at no cost, including online options.
