All ten campuses of the university system are separately and regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
- UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, UH West Oʻahu and UH Maui College are accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).
- The UH Community Colleges are accredited by the WASC Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC).
Regional accreditation means that, as the result of an external review process, the university is judged to be fulfilling its stated purposes and can be expected to continue to do so. Students and the public can be assured that University of Hawaiʻi campuses have met standards of quality across the entire range of institutional activities. Regional accreditation is a basic criterion whereby U.S. higher education institutions accept transfer credit.
