What is WASC?

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), is CSUF's accrediting body.

"The WASC Senior College and University Commission (the Commissions) is a regional accrediting agency serving a diverse membership of public and private higher education institutions throughout California, Hawaii, and the Pacific as well as a limited number of institutions outside the United States. Through its work of peer review, based on standards agreed to by the membership, the Commission encourages continuous institutional improvement and assures the membership and its constituencies, including the public, that accredited institutions are fulfilling their missions in service to their students and the public good."

More information is available on the main WASC website. To see the report drafted in response to CSUF's most recent WASC visit, go to the CSUF Accreditation website.
