UH Mānoa Accreditation

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. Our next review is scheduled for Fall 2020, with a campus visit in Spring 2021. A Steering Committee has been formed to oversee the review process and to prepare the self-study. If you have questions regarding accreditation please contact Wendy Pearson, Accreditation Liaison Officer, at
