Welcome to Cal Poly Humboldt’s accreditation website. Here you will find complete information related to the university’s accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).

Cal Poly Humboldt’s Accreditation Coordinating Committee has been joined by faculty, staff, and students to form the WSCUC 2026 Accreditation Steering Committee. Chaired by AVP and Accreditation Liaison Officer Carmen Bustos-Works, this committee will serve as primary authors of the university’s institutional report and shepherd the Cal Poly Humboldt community through the entire reaffirmation process, from the summer 2025 report submission to the WSCUC team’s fall 2025 offsite review to the team’s spring 2026 campus visit.

Visit our Accreditation Timeline page for an overview of process and events in the year ahead.
