UC Santa Barbara is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). In order to retain that status, the campus is periodically reviewed to ensure that the educational standards described in the WASC 2008 Handbook of Accreditation are met. Reaffirmation of accreditation is a multi-year, self-study process that formally engages the campus in institution-wide reflection on educational capacity and performance. It is a rigorous examination of how institutional resources, structures, and processes are aligned with scholastic outcomes.
