 UC San Diego Review Timeline:

  • Offsite Review - April 23, 2019
  • Accreditation Visit - November 20-22, 2019

The status of accreditation indicates that an institution has fulfilled the requirements for accreditation established by the Handbook of Accreditation. This means that the institution has:

  1. Demonstrated that it meets the Core Commitments.
  2. Conducted a self-review under the Standards, developed and presented indicators of institutional performance, and identified areas for improvement.
  3. Developed approved institutional reports for accreditation that have been evaluated by teams of reviewers under the relevant institutional review processes.
  4. Demonstrated to the Commission that it meets or exceeds the expectations of the Standards.
  5. Committed itself to institutional improvement, periodic self-evaluation, and continuing compliance with the Standards, policies, procedures, and decisions.

Accreditation is attained following the evaluation of the entire institution and continues until formally withdrawn. It is subject, however, to periodic review and to conditions, as determined by the Commission. Every accredited institution files an Annual Report, provides information for a Mid-Cycle Review, and undergoes a comprehensive self-review and peer review at least every ten years.

We are currently participating in an institutional review for our reaffirmation of accreditation which includes an offsite review in spring 2019 and an accreditation visit in fall 2019.
