    Western Governors University

    Regionally and Nationally Accredited
    Western Governors University is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of the major accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The Northwest Commission is also responsible for the accreditation of other major institutions such as the University of Washington, University of Oregon, Gonzaga University, University of Utah, University of Idaho, and BYU, to name just a few. Although regional accreditation is considered the highest form of accreditation, WGU is also nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).

    A Unique Story in the Annals of Higher Education Accreditation
    WGU has the distinction of being the only university to receive regional accreditation from four regional accrediting commissions. In part because of its founding by the governors of 19 western states, which encompass a wide geographic region, WGU was simultaneously reviewed by a special committee — the Inter-Regional Accrediting Committee — comprised of representatives from four regional accrediting commissions. In February 2003, the committee awarded WGU accreditation in all four regions, an extraordinary recognition that had never before nor since occurred. The Northwest Commission is now considered WGU's "home" accrediting body because the university's headquarters are located in Utah, which falls under the review of the Northwest Commission. WGU still continues to be an institution with a broad focus and a mission to expand access to higher education. For instance, WGU now serves students in all 50 states and several foreign countries and employs faculty mentors in over 30 states.

    NCATE Accreditation
    In October 2006, the WGU Teachers College became the first and only online provider of teacher education to receive accreditation from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The NCATE accrediting team extensively reviewed the entire WGU Teachers College curriculum to ensure "that candidates have the knowledge and skills to be effective in helping all students learn." NCATE is the premier specialized accrediting body for teacher preparation and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. It accredits colleges of education that produce over two-thirds of the nation's new teacher graduates annually.
