NewSchool of Architecture and Design has been granted initial accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission.
WASC accreditation indicates that NewSchool has met its standards for quality, institutional capacity and educational effectiveness.
This is the latest accreditation achieved by the school, which currently holds institutional accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) and programmatic accreditation for its professional architecture programs through the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
WASC is one of six regional associations that accredit public and private schools, colleges and universities in the United States. Through its review processes, WASC confirms that an institution has the resources, policies and practices in place to achieve its educational goals.
