Program Eligibility Requirements

We accredit postsecondary, degree-granting programs offered by regionally accredited institutions in the United States and nationally accredited institutions outside the United States. We do not accredit certification, training, or doctoral programs.

  1. Meet 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖鈥橲 Definition of a Program

    We accredit programs only鈥攏ot degrees, departments, colleges, institutions, or individuals. We define a program as an integrated, organized experience that culminates in the awarding of a degree. The program will have program educational objectives, student outcomes, a curriculum, faculty, and facilities, as described in the聽accreditation criteria. We do not accredit certification, training, or doctoral programs.

  2. Be Housed in a Degree-Granting Institution

    We accept聽Requests for Evaluation (RFE)聽from post-secondary programs offered by degree-granting institutions with verifiable and recognized governmental, national, or regional authority to confer degrees. In some cases, an institution that does not meet this requirement may request an evaluation for a program if that program鈥檚 accreditation furthers 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖鈥檚 Mission.

  3. Have at Least One Graduate

    Programs requesting an initial accreditation review must have at least one graduate prior to the academic year when the on-site review occurs.

  4. Name Must Meet 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 Requirements

    The name of a program seeking accreditation must be descriptive of the program鈥檚 content and be stated exactly the same way on the graduate鈥檚 transcript and in the institution鈥檚 literature.

    Programs outside the U.S. where English is not the native language, must provide the program鈥檚 name both in English and in the native language(s). An institution may not use the same program name to identify both an 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖-accredited program and a program that is not 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖-accredited.

  5. Be Accreditable Under at Least One 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 Accreditation Commission

    Each program seeking accreditation will be assigned to a specific commission or commissions based upon the literal name of the program:

    Applied and Natural Science Accreditation Commission (ANSAC)
    Programs accredited by ANSAC are those leading to professional practice utilizing science, mathematics, and engineering concepts as a foundation for discipline-specific practice. ANSAC accredits programs at the following degree levels: associate, bachelor, and master.

    Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC)
    Programs accredited by CAC are those leading to professional practice across the broad spectrum of computing, computational, information, and informatics disciplines. CAC accredits programs at the following degree level: bachelor.

    Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC)
    Programs accredited by EAC are those leading to the professional practice of engineering. All engineering programs requesting 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 review must include the word 鈥渆ngineering鈥 in the program name. EAC accredits programs at the following degree levels: bachelor and master.

    Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC)
    Programs accredited by ETAC prepare baccalaureate degree graduates for careers in sectors such as construction, manufacturing, product design, testing, or technical services and sales. Graduates of two-year engineering technology programs likely assume engineering technician positions in maintenance, production, or product development. The name of every ETAC-accredited program that includes the word 鈥渆ngineering鈥 in the name of the program must also include the word 鈥渢echnology鈥 directly after the word 鈥渆ngineering.鈥 ETAC accredits programs at the following degree levels: associate and bachelor.

  6. Some Programs Must Undergo a Readiness Review

    We require a preliminary Self-Study Report from all programs seeking initial accreditation, if the institution has no currently 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖-accredited programs in that same commission. After a review of this preliminary Self-Study Report, which is called the聽Readiness Review, we will determine whether or not an institution is ready to submit a formal Request for Evaluation (RFE) for that program.
