Granted Candidacy

Candidacy is a status of preliminary affiliation with the Senior College and University Commission, awarded for a maximum of four years following a procedure for institutional review that includes self-study and on-site visitation. Candidacy indicates that the institution meets all or nearly all the Standards at a minimum level. Candidacy is not accreditation and does not ensure eventual accreditation; it means that an institution is progressing toward accreditation. This is the date that the institution was first granted the status of Candidacy with WSCUC. Not all institutions have become accredited with WSCUC through the Candidacy process.

Season Year Review Type
Spring 2020 Mid-Cycle Review

The Mid-Cycle Review (MCR) is a review of each institution near the midpoint of its period of accreditation, focusing particularly on student achievement. The Review is performed by WSCUC staff, and draws on evidence from an update of the institution’s Inventory of Educational Effectiveness Indicators and retention and graduation data, as well as any trends emerging from Annual Reports to surface any potential issues across the Standards. The overall purpose of the Mid-Cycle Review is to "identify problems with an institution's or program's continued compliance with agency standards" while "tak[ing] into account institutional or program strengths and stability" (U.S. Department of Education, §602.19(b)).
