What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.
Cal State East Bay receives our institutional accreditation by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, commonly referred to as WASC. Review plans for the 2025 Reaffirmation here. Review information on the University’s Reaffirmation for 2015 here.
