Important Dates

August 11, 2021 - Institutional Report

USD will engage in a process in which we prepare and submit to WSCUC an institutional report that addresses our three areas for improvement (the undergraduate core curriculum, academic program review, and diversity), the WSCUC accreditation standards and criteria for review, federal requirements, a theme, and reflection; all of this will be supported by documentation with evidentiary value. USD is following the Thematic Pathway for Reaffirmation (TPR) and our theme is the Envisioning 2024 strategic plan (specifically Goals 1, 2, and 5).

October 20-22, 2021 - Accreditation Campus Visit

A WSCUC on-site evaluation team will visit USD and meet with campus representatives over a three-day period to verify and finalize findings regarding compliance and areas of improvement.

Details - Timeline

To prepare for both of these Fall 2021 dates, a timeline for reaffirmation has been created and shared with the campus community.
