Washington Academy of Languages is a division of City University of Seattle. CityU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, a regional accrediting body approved by the U.S. Department of Education. Regional accreditation serves as the most important means of assuring the quality of higher education through rigorous peer-review and evaluation. CityU has maintained continuous accreditation with the Commission since 1978, earning reaffirmation of accreditation in its last review in 2018. Members of the accreditation review visited locations in Washington State, Europe, Mexico, and Canada.

As part of the NWCCU comprehensive accreditation review, CityU invites students; alumni; employers of alumni; community leaders, and members of the general public to comment directly to the Commission about their experience with CityU. As a result subsequent reviews were sent about all of CityU’s certificate, undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. Each is regionally accredited through the NWCCU. All comments were mailed to the Commission at the following address:
