Accreditation

WVU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The West Virginia University School of Medicine Pathologists' Assistant Program received the highest level of accreditation possible for a first time applicant from NAACLS in 2009, a full 5 years.  Currently the program has been accredited by NAACLS for an additional 7 years.

Upon completion of the program, our students are eligible to take the ASCP certification exam for Pathologists' Assistants.  We currently have a 100% pass rate for all graduates taking the exam, on their first attempt, and a 100% job placement rate within one month of graduation.
