Washington State University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Most recently reaffirmed in 2013, WSU has been continuously accredited by its regional higher education authority since 1918.
WSU is currently in a seven-year accreditation cycle from 2011-2018. Revised in 2010, NWCCU’s accreditation standards require self-studies addressing one to three standards over a multi-year cycle. These periodic self-studies accrue into one comprehensive report and site visit at the end of the seven years.
