The accreditation records contain Concordia University self-studies and reports from the accrediting agencies.
The high school was first accredited in 1948 with both the State of Oregon and the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools. The college faculty worked on accreditation issues for several years until in 1960 the Board of Control resolved that the institution go forward with the accreditation process. The college was first accredited with NASHS in December of 1962. Later the accreditation came from the Northwest Association. The Board for Higher Education of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod also required regular reports and sent evaluation teams.
Further accruals are expected.
