Institutional accreditation in American higher education is a voluntary process. Sacramento State's accrediting body is called The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The following documents were prepared by WASC to help us ensure our sustainability as an institution the public can trust to educate adults at the baccalaureate and graduate level. Also on this page are links to special accrediting bodies relevant to particular departments and Colleges.
