A Note on Accreditation

The Board of Trustees has determined that Zaytuna College shall pursue accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a preeminent accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to conduct reviews of schools and colleges. WASC also accredits Zaytuna’s neighboring institutions such as University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University. Accreditation by WASC will be of great benefit to our students pursuing post-graduate education—and also to the general reputation of the college. As such, Zaytuna College considers this a top institution-wide priority.

Zaytuna College has applied for Eligibility from the Senior College Commission of WASC. The application has been reviewed and WASC has determined that Zaytuna College is eligible to proceed with an application for Candidacy for Accreditation. A determination of Eligibility is a preliminary finding that the institution is potentially accreditable and can proceed within four years to be reviewed for Candidacy status with the Accrediting Commission. (Questions about Eligibility may be directed to Zaytuna or to WASC at www.wascsenior.org or at 510-748-9001.)

Meanwhile, Zaytuna College has been granted approval to operate and to issue degrees by California’s Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). Such "approval to operate" indicates that the Bureau has determined and certified that an institution meets minimum standards for integrity, financial stability, and educational quality, including the offering of bona fide instruction by qualified faculty and the appropriate assessment of students' achievement prior to, during, and at the end of its program. Zaytuna College is committed to providing its students with a high-quality education and a supportive and safe learning environment.
