WASC Accreditation Update

March 03, 2021

To the Caltech Community:

It is with great pleasure that we share the news that Caltech has been reaccredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) for ten years. The Commission Action Letter can be found on the Caltech Accreditation website at In addition to the letter, you can find on the website the institutional report and working group documents, should you wish to refer to them.

This outcome is the result of an extraordinary collaboration across the entire Institute, and we are grateful for the time and effort put in by the faculty, undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and staff who participated in a lengthy process that provided us with the quantitative and qualitative data that revealed our strengths and areas for improvement.

It was an honor to work with all of you, and we look forward to building on the momentum that this process has generated.
