Accreditation

Welcome to HMC’s accreditation website. Here you will find complete information related to HMC’s accreditation by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).

In March 2022, Harvey Mudd’s accreditation by WSCUC was reaffirmed for a 10-year period, the maximum term possible. The Commission Action Letter conveying HMC’s accreditation is here.

The commission’s decision was informed by the report of the review team, that conducted the Accreditation Visit to Harvey Mudd College from October 12-15, 2021, and by HMC’s Institutional Report for Reaffirmation, submitted to WSCUC on August 3rd 2021. A full description of the reaffirmation process, including links to relevant documents, can be found here.

HMC appreciates the guidance provided by the review team and the WSCUC Commission. Specialized accreditation information can be found below.
