Institutional Accreditation (WSCUC)

Welcome to the NPS' Institutional Accreditation page. This is a central place where accreditation and other supporting documents are available for the campus community.  We also seek to inform and support the NPS community about reaccreditation activity as guided by WSCUC (WASC Senior College and University Commission).

NPS has created a Committee to help guide the University through all its accreditation and assessment activities, including its Special Visit in Spring 2024. The AAARC (Accreditation and Assessment Review Committee) consists of members who represent a cross section of departments and staff functions from across the University.  From this page, you’ll find accreditation FAQs and answers, a list of members, and updates on the committee’s progress.
