WSCUC Reaffirmation of Accreditation

For the past two years, the University of San Francisco engaged in an institutional self-study in anticipation for our WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) reaffirmation of accreditation. We submitted our Institutional Report on March 8, 2018, and the self-study culminated in an on-campus Accreditation Visit on October 8 – 10, 2018. The WSCUC Commission met on February 21, 2019 to discuss our reaccreditation efforts and reaffirmed USF's accreditation for 10 years with an interim report due in 2023

Find out more about the reaffirmation of accreditation process, including the WSCUC Review Team Report, action plans, WSCUC Commission action letter, timelines, and communication, by visiting the WSCUC Reaffirmation of Accreditation page.
