Formerly Accredited or Candidate Institutions

A number of institutions were accredited or granted candidacy by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) at one time, but no longer have status with the Commission. Their status may have changed for a number of reasons, including but not limited to closure of the institution, merger with another institution, voluntary withdrawal from accreditation by the institution, or termination of accreditation by WSCUC. This list does not include institutions that applied for accreditation but withdrew from the process before candidacy or accreditation was granted, or institutions which withdrew or lost their status in the past but have since reapplied and been granted candidacy or accreditation.

Contact information for transcript requests is given where this is known. WSCUC cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. WSCUC does not hold transcripts for formerly accredited institutions, is not able to process requests for transcripts, and is not able to help in cases where former students are experiencing difficulties in getting transcripts. Please see for additional information about locating transcripts.

Please note that the Commission changed its name in July 2014. Prior to then, it was known as the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
