Reaccreditation Process

Over the past two years, Saint Mary's has engaged in the reaccreditation process with our regional accreditor, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  This process included an off-site visit (December 2 2013), and will include an Accreditation Vist (September 10-12, 2014) from a WASC evaluation team.  

In preparation for the visits, Saint Mary's submitted an Institutional Report on  September 23, 2013.  This Institutional Report primarily reflects on the College's mission, its history with WASC, and on several issues relevant to higher education today:

  • The meaning of a college degree
  • The core competencies that we provide to undergraduates
  • Degree completion and student success
  • The capacity and sustainability of the institution
