WSCUC Accreditation

Mills College was founded in 1852 and has been fully accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) since 1949. The WSCUC offices are located at 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501.

The College completed its last reaccreditation review in spring 2011 when WSCUC received the Educational Effectiveness Report and reaffirmed accreditation. The Commission action letter, dated February 28, 2011, states, "In taking this action to reaffirm accreditation, the Commission confirms that Mills has satisfactorily addressed the Core Commitments to Institutional Capacity and Educational Effectiveness, and has successfully completed the three-stage review conducted under the Standards of Accreditation."

An interim report was submitted to WSCUC on October 31, 2014.

The College is currently working on the Institutional Report for its reaccreditation. That report is due in November 2018. The reaccreditation review process continues through spring 2020.
