Current Accreditation Status

Accredited with Notice of Concern indicates that the institution, while it currently meets WASC Standards, is in danger of being found out of compliance with one or more Standards if current trends continue. It may also be issued if an institution is removed from sanction and the Commission wishes to emphasize the need for continuing progress. Formal Notice of Concern requires a special visit within four years to assess progress. If the Commission's concerns are not addressed by that time, a sanction is imposed.

Season Year Review Type
Fall 2021 Progress Report
Spring 2022 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)).

Fall 2022 Interim Report

Interim Reports focus on specific issues of concern identified as part of the comprehensive review process, annual report submission, the complaint process, substantive change, or other interactions with the Commission. The purpose of Interim Reports is to ensure that institutions continue to meet the Core Commitments and Standards with respect to the identified areas of concern.
