GGU is accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), the organization that accredits universities in California and Hawaii, including Stanford, University of San Francisco, UC Berkeley, and San Jose State University. WSCUC is one of six regional associations that accredit public and private schools, colleges, and universities in the United States and is nationally recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). GGU has been accredited by WSCUC since 1959. In June 2019 our accreditation was reaffirmed through Spring 2025, meeting all criteria for accreditation. Golden Gate University is committed to complying with WASC’s accreditation requirements.

Our full and part-time faculty have a strong practitioner background and bring their practical experience to the classroom, ensuring high quality education for our students. With more than 68,000 alumni, we are confident that GGU prepares students with knowledge and skills that can be used throughout their careers.
