UPC: THE ONLY PERUVIAN UNIVERSITY TO BE INSTITUTIONALLY ACCREDITED AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL BY WSCUC, FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

We are proud to be the first Peruvian University to be institutionally accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States as well as one of the most prestigious worldwide.

According to the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 33 of the world’s top 50 universities are American, and all of them are institutionally accredited by a regional entity. Out of the 33, 9 of them have been accredited by WSCUC, including Stanford University (# 2); UC Berkeley (# 4); California Institute of Technology (# 7) and University of California Los Angeles, UCLA (# 12).

This institutional accreditation represents a valuable contribution to the Peruvian higher education system and it reaffirms UPC’s solid commitment to academic excellence and to the country's development.
