The University of Michigan is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCACS). Reaccreditation at the University level will be occurring in 2020.

School of Nursing

All School of Nursing programs at the baccalaureate and master's level are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the State of Michigan's Board of Nursing. The CCNE Board of Commissioners granted the U-M School of Nursing accreditation for ten years, extending to June 30, 2022. The U-M School of Nursing’s reaccreditation process included a comprehensive site visit in 2011 by four colleagues from other accredited nursing schools.  The team, which was appointed by the CCNE, closely investigated all aspects of the school’s BSN and MS curricula offerings and resources.
