The Eligibility Review Committee

The Eligibility Review Committee (ERC) conducts reviews of the applications received from institutions seeking Eligibility to determine if the institution:

  • Fits within the scope of institutions which WSCUC would likely accredit in terms of type and scope of program(s), and the applicant’s self-definition within the higher education community
  • Meets each of the Eligibility criteria published in “How to Become Accredited” and provides specific feedback on those Criteria which the applicant does not meet
  • Demonstrates sufficient resources in terms of finances, leadership, constituent support, and depth of planning to show promise of moving on to Candidacy and Initial Accreditation within the timeframes approved by the Commission
