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.
