After a year-and-a-half long process that included multiple reports, self-study and a campus inspection, UH Maui College has been re-accredited for the next eight years by the WASC Senior College and University Commission.

“We’ve still got some work to do in certain areas like enrollment and student assessment and success data but I’m very happy about our accomplishment,” UH Maui College Chancellor Lui Hokoana said in a statement.

It’s good news for the school’s administration, faculty and students, obviously. The process was drawn-out and arduous. But just how hard is it to get WASC accreditation? Not very. 

According to the most recent data from WASC, 99 percent of schools ultimately receive accreditation, most right away, though about 5 percent are required to go through a “probationary visit” within one to two years. So it’s a long test, but not a particularly tough one. Still, a tip of the mortar board to UH Maui, our island’s only institution of higher learning.
