Regional Accreditation Achieved by Westcliff University

With much pride, this is to announce that Westcliff University has received confirmation from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) that on June 29, 2018 WSCUC formally granted regional accreditation to Westcliff University for an initial period of six years (June 29, 2018 – June 28, 2024).

WSCUC (previously known only as WASC) is one of the six regional accreditors in the United States which accredit institutions.

This monumental milestone for the university is the result of tremendous team effort and significant commitment by the university’s stakeholders to the Westcliff Mission – providing students with practical, innovative, high-quality, global education.

Westcliff University has been officially recognized as being regionally accredited on the WSCUC website. Notice of the accreditation is in the process of being posted on the Department of Education, CHEA, IPEDS, and other such websites.

We hope that everyone is excited and proud to be a part of this journey that will only continue to expand and evolve in the future.

Congratulations to all members of our Westcliff family: students, faculty, board members, program advisory council members, staff, international partners, and community residents around the world who, by their active association with the university, helped make this dream come true.
