Life West Achieves WSCUC Accreditation
Hayward, CA (March 27, 2017) - The Life West Board of Regents and Interim President, Dr. Ron Oberstein are delighted to announce that Life Chiropractic College West has achieved regional accreditation from WASC Senior Commission of Universities and College (WSCUC).
Interim President, Dr. Ron Oberstein congratulates the Life West team. “The Life West community continually impresses me with the level of service and commitment to excellence I see on campus every day. This victory is a win for each and every one of us and most importantly for the students who graduate from Life West and shape the future of this great profession.”
Accreditation with WSCUC represents a great step for Life West and demonstrates the quality of a Life West education. Life West began its candidacy status on July 15, 2015 and since that date many hours of diligence and planning have led to this exciting news.
The Chairman of the Life West Board of Regents, Dr. Jimmy Nanda, thanks the entire community who pulled together to make this moment a reality. “I never doubted that this team would accomplish this important goal. The team at Life West is unparalleled in their passion, determination and commitment to producing the very best chiropractors on the planet. The entire Board of Regents feels great pride in this accomplishment and as an alumnus of Life West, I have never been more proud."
“This achievement would not have been possible without the incredible work of so many brilliant people across campus. We have had tremendous assistance from faculty, staff and administrators, working countless hours to make this vision come to life for Life West,” reports Life West Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Scott Donaldson.
The future of Life West is very bright. As Interim President, Dr. Ron Oberstein reminds us, “Thank you for your support and your shared vision for what we can achieve together in chiropractic. Life West is shining at its brightest today, and I am excited to see the great accomplishments Life West will bring to the profession and to the world.”
What WASC Accreditation Means to Life West Students and Graduates
Now that Life West has achieved regional accreditation, students who graduate with a DC degree from LCCW can transfer those credits to other accredited undergraduate or postgraduate programs, depending on the institution.
These benefits are retroactive to all those who have graduated since Life West received candidacy status with WSCUC on July 15, 2015.
Life Chiropractic College West is accredited by the CCE (Council on Chiropractic Education) and WSCUC (WASC Senior Commission of Universities and College).
