What is WASC Accreditation?The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States. WASC Accreditation is a voluntary dual-purpose process that schools (1) must be worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high-quality learning opportunities and (2) clearly demonstrate continual self-improvement. An accredited school is focused on a mission and goals for students; it is student-oriented and examines its students' performance continuously; it accepts objective evaluation from a team of outside peer professionals trained by WASC; it maintains a qualified faculty within an effectively organized school; it collaboratively assesses the quality of its educational programs on a regular basis; and it plans for the future.
Who benefits from WASC Accreditation?Everyone. WASC accreditation is a valuable service to the public, students and educational institutions themselves.
For example: The public is assured that accredited institutions are evaluated extensively and conform to general expectations of performance and quality. Because accreditation requires continual self-evaluation, frequent reports, and periodic external review, the public can be assured that the educational quality of programs and services offered by the institution are current, reflect high standards of quality, and are offered with integrity.
Students can be assured that the institutions in which they seek to enroll have been reviewed and the educational programs that are offered have been evaluated for quality and content.
Educational institutions benefit from the stimulus for self-study and self-improvement provided by the accreditation process.
Accreditation confers several benefits, in particular the ability to administer federal financial aid for students. To remain accredited, institutions must demonstrate that they meet the WASC Standards and satisfy the WASC Criteria for Review
Also helpful is the ongoing counsel provided by the accreditation commissions and the hundreds of peer experts used in the process of external evaluation.
Accreditation status also increases opportunities for public and private funding for both the institution and students and enhances the institution’s credibility and reputation.
