Simpson University has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) since 1969. WSCUC is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States.
As a member, the university participates in periodic accreditation review. By participating in this process Simpson University demonstrates its commitment to developing and sustaining institutional capacity (operational integrity, fiscal stability and appropriate organizational structures to fulfill its purposes) and its commitment to educational effectiveness (organizing for learning and being a learning organization).
