Accreditation Status & Public Information Policy
Cal Poly's five-year program in landscape architecture is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) and recognized by the Landscape Architects Technical Committee of the California Board of Architectural Examiners. Public Information Policy Programs accredited by the LAAB are required to provide reliable information to the public. Programs must report on accreditation status and their performance. This information is to help potential students make informed application decisions.
