Recent Accreditation Reports

Recent Accreditation Reports

Since Santa Clara University’s initial accreditation by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, the institution has submitted regular reports to seek reaffirmation of accreditation. Below are copies of recent reports and the WASC Commission responses.

Following the comprehensive WASC review in 2011, Santa Clara University received reaffirmation of accreditation to the year 2021. The University was also asked to submit an Interim Report to WASC in March 2014 focusing on four topics: refining and expanding assessment and program review; promoting inclusive excellence; integrating the Jesuit School of Theology into the life of SCU; and enhancing shared governance and communication. In July 2014, the Commission accepted the interim report and reaffirmed Santa Clara’s accreditation through 2021.
