Accreditation

Another symbol of excellence at SCU is reflected by its regional accreditation. Regional accreditation is not the same as national accreditation. The main difference between the two is that credits earned from institutions that are regionally accredited are more widely accepted and thus more easily transferable.  Southern California University of Health Sciences is accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501.
