Social Work Program Approvals and Accreditations

In order to ensure the highest level of quality in training and education within our MSW program, we seek to obtain and maintain proper external reviews and approvals of our degree programs. We currently have the following program approvals and accreditation:

  • National University is regionally accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001,
  • National University’s MSW program received approval from WASC in October 2018.
  • In October of 2021, NU received full accreditation of our MSW program with the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). 

Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of the program and the competence of students graduating from the program.

State of Washington students can contact the Washington Department of Health/Health Professions Quality Assurance division to ensure the NU MSW program will qualify them for licensure as a Social Worker in that State.
