W1 - Achieving Initial Accreditation from WSCUC

This workshop is required for all institutions prior to submitting their WSCUC Eligibility application to achieve accreditation. The focus will be the process institutions undergo in seeking accreditation. The workshop will provide an overview of the process, including a review of each of the Eligibility Criteria and steps following the granting of Eligibility to achieve Initial Accreditation. Participants consider possible timelines, and have the opportunity to ask questions prior to expending time and resources on this demanding process. Consideration is given to the wide range of types of institutions that may apply and how the process may be adapted to each.
