2015 Accreditation Review

UC Berkeley had its institutional accreditation reaffirmed in 2015 under the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC) pilot institutional review process. This process focused on the meaning, quality, and integrity of degrees; evidence of student learning at all degree levels, emphasizing undergraduates' skills acquisition; undergraduate graduation and retention rates; and institutional sustainability and strategic planning for the future.
