The school's accreditation was recently under review by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and State of Alaska, a process that happens nationally with colleges and universities. About this process, President David Dobler said, "SJC’s current authorization to operate as an Alaska postsecondary institution has been extended until July 2006, and SJC, at that time, will be required to provide the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) with documentation of financial and administrative capacity in order for authorization to be renewed.

Sheldon Jackson College has a history of financial and retention issues. Due to extremely high turnover rates and poor financial management, the college has been forced to sell historic land and take out extensive loans just to cover expenses. Additionally, the college came under fire in the Fall of 2004 when a financial aid advisor they had hired misrepresented and over-awarded financial aid to nearly all students resulting in tens of thousands of dollars of debt owed to the college, by students.
On June 29, 2007 all academic operations were suspended and all faculty and staff were dismissed due to cash flow shortages. The Board of Trustees gathered together all staff and informed them that June 29th would be their last day of employment. They were also informed all health insurance benefits ceased to exist as of that moment.
On July 17, 2007 the Alaska Commission on Post-secondary Education (ACPE) announced the cancellation of Sheldon Jackson College's authorization to operate a college in Alaska. The College was reported to be appealing the Commission decision.
As of July 10th, there had been no written notification to students regarding the closure of the college.
The school was in fact closed. In March 2008, the official website for the school is off-line.
The school's library is Stratton Library and the noted Sheldon Jackson Museum also sits on college grounds. Stratton Library was an academic library at Sheldon Jackson College. Sheldon Jackson Museum is a museum located on the campus of Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka, Alaska.
