CWI Concludes Accreditation Visit

October 7, 2016

This week (Oct. 5-7), College of Western Idaho (CWI) completed a significant milestone in its quest for independent accreditation through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). CWI hosted NWCCU representatives for a campus visit, serving as a follow up to submitting the College’s year seven self-evaluation report to the Commission.

The visit included meetings with the CWI Board of Trustees and College leadership, and campus forums. Thank you to everyone involved for making the visit successful.

The NWCCU will review the year seven report and findings from the committee’s site visit to determine whether or not to recommend CWI for accreditation. A decision on CWI’s independent accreditation status could be determined as early as January 2017.
