UC Davis has been fully accredited since 1954 by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WSCUC), our regional accreditation agency. This accreditation was reaffirmed in 2003 following a multi-year, self-study process that formally engaged the campus in institution-wide reflection on capacity and educational effectiveness. Being accredited means the campus has met rigorous standards for quality, capacity and effectiveness. Accreditation confers a variety of benefits, especially access to federal financial aid resources.

Educational Objectives for Students

The Educational Objectives for Students were adopted by the Academic Senate in April 2002. The UC Davis Educational Objectives articulate our aspirations for student learning; help to establish campus priorities and guide decision making related to student development; and guide academic programs in the review of how their classes and course requirements interact with the goals to demonstrate educational effectiveness.
