UH Mānoa Reaccreditation

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is accredited by the Senior Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WASC, one of six regional accrediting agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, evaluates and accredits schools, colleges, and universities in California, Hawaiʻi, and the Pacific Islands. UH Mānoa has been fully accredited since 1955.

UH Mānoa's last comprehensive review culminated in 2011 with a ten-year reaffirmation of accreditation through Spring 2021. Ten years is the longest reaffirmation period granted by WASC. An Interim Report was submitted in 2015 at the midpoint between reviews. The review panel favorably received the report, and WASC reaffirmed our accreditation schedule as listed below. If you have questions regarding accreditation or would like to serve on the steering committee for the 2020 review, please contact Wendy Pearson, Accreditation Liaison Officer, at
