Virscend University has applied for Eligibility from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). WSCUC has reviewed the application and determined that the University is eligible to proceed with an application for Candidacy and Initial Accreditation. A determination of Eligibility is not a formal status with the WASC Senior College and University Commission, nor does it ensure eventual accreditation. It is a preliminary finding that the institution is potentially accreditable and can proceed within five years of its Eligibility determination to be reviewed for Candidacy or Initial Accreditation status with the Commission. 

 It is a huge honor for a school to receive accreditation, so our team of staff and faculty is working diligently to obtain an official seal of approval from WASC.

Questions about Eligibility may be directed to the institution or to WSCUC at or (510) 748-9001.
