Regarding WSCUC Accreditation


Virscend University has been recognized as a Candidate for Accreditation by  WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001. This status is a preliminary affiliation with the Commission awarded for a maximum period of five years.  Candidacy is an indication that the institution is progressing toward Accreditation. Candidacy is not Accreditation and does not ensure eventual Accreditation.

It is a huge honor for a school to receive accreditation, so Virscend University continues to work diligently to obtain an official seal of approval from WASC. Questions about Candidacy may be directed to the institution or to WSCUC at or (510) 748-9001.
