Dear Members of the Chico State Community,

The WASC Senior College and University Commission accredits Chico State, and our last reaffirmation of accreditation occurred in 2009.  We have been preparing for the next review, which will occur this year.  We are pleased to let you know that we have achieved a major milestone in these preparations.  The WASC institutional report has been completed, and can be viewed online at the following site:

Putting this report together has been a multi-year team effort, and we would like to thank each of you who contributed to the planning, research, writing, and production of the report.  It literally could not have been done without you.

Going forward, in early December, we will engage with the WASC site visiting team in an off-campus review.  The team will give us their preliminary feedback on the institutional report and some lines of inquiry for our upcoming in-person campus visit in March 2019.

We look forward to engaging with you about the upcoming site review, and look forward to your participation in the campus visit.
