The University of the South Pacific (USP) is accredited by The WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The University was granted Initial Accreditation by WSCUC for a period of six years, effective from July 20, 2018, after successful submission of the Seeking Accreditation Visit 1 (SAV1) Institution Report and hosting of the WSCUC Seeking Accreditation Visit 1 (SAV1) in April 2018.
The Initial Accreditation status indicates that USP fulfilled the requirements for WSCUC Accreditation at a substantial level.
The WSCUC Accreditation Status assures stakeholders that USP has been rigorously evaluated and that it meets or exceeds the criteria required to maintain accreditation. The accreditation process is designed to build a culture of evidence, promote a commitment to institutional improvement, validate institutional integrity, and provide feedback that improves the accreditation process itself.
