About USIU
United States International University (USIU) is located in the Kasarani area, off Thika Road in the suburb of Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi. The university is an independent, not-for-profit institution serving 5534 students representing 62 nationalities; 85% of whom are domestic and 15% are international.

It was founded in 1969 as the Africa campus of United States International University in San Diego, California. The university was first accredited in 1981 by the accrediting commission for senior colleges and universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as part of USIU-San Diego.

However, the university was mandated to become chartered in Kenya with the gazettement of the Universities Act in 1985. Regulations and procedures for the accreditation of private universities were published in 1989, and in 1999 USIU was awarded its charter as an independent institution through the Commission for Higher Education (now the Commission for University Education) – CHE. In Kenya, this requirement was for private universities only; the public universities did not have any accreditation requirement.

In 2001, the system-wide university structure began to change. USIU-San Diego merged with the former California School of Professional Psychology to form Alliant International University; USIU in Kenya pursued independent accreditation from the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges receiving this accreditation in 2005.
