WSCUC Special Visit Report

What is WSCUC?

Humboldt State University is accredited by “WSCUC,” the WASC Senior College & University Commission (formerly known as simply WASC; or the Association of Schools and Colleges). Our accreditation status is vitally important – through the process of self-study and feedback, we ensure that our institutional objectives are clearly defined, measured, assessed and achieved. In other words, the reaffirmation of our WASC accreditation confirms the success of our collective efforts to best serve our students.

Accreditation is a peer review process that helps us re-examine our strengths and weakness, re-affirm our mission and vision, and ensure our continual development and improvement. Without a positive accreditation status, we would lose all federal financial aid and many of our students.
