The mission of the Academic Program Review Office is to support UC Santa Barbara’s academic excellence through periodic comprehensive evaluations of academic departments, programs, and interdisciplinary groups.

UC Santa Barbara is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). In order to retain that status, the campus is periodically reviewed to ensure that the campus meets WASC’s Core Commitments and Criteria for Review.
