ACEJMC Accreditation Status
last update: 09-08-14

Return to ACEJMC Main Menu


 

ACEJMC accredits programs in journalism and mass communications at colleges and universities in the United States, Puerto Rico and outside the country. Programs requesting a review by ACEJMC are evaluated every six years and, after the evaluative process, receive one of three determinations: accredited/reaccredited, provisional or denial.

A program denied accreditation, even if previously accredited, cannot align itself publicly in any way with ACEJMC, nor will ACEJMC do so. A denied program can reapply for accreditation review after two years and must submit to the full evaluative process with particular emphasis on how previous deficiencies were corrected. No programs denied accreditation are listed here.

Provisional Programs

The listing of a program as provisional means deficiencies identified during the review process resulted in the Accrediting Council withholding full accreditation/reaccreditation. The unit has a two-year provisional period to correct the deficiencies, after which the program is reviewed again and either reaccredited or denied. There is no extension of the provisional period. The unit also may choose to withdraw, ending any ACEJMC affiliation.

Included with each provisional listing below are: unit information; the bachelor's and/or professional master's degree programs examined during the review; the standard(s) found in noncompliance that led to the provisional status, the year when placed on provisional status, and a link to the most recent site team report, which details what must be corrected for accreditation. [In some cases, not all programs within the unit were reviewed; in these instances, the areas reviewed are shown in brackets.]

2013-14 Site Team Report

 

Accredited/Reaccredited

ACEJMC currently has 114 fully accredited programs. The listing of a unit as accredited or reaccredited indicates that the unit received full accreditation/reaccreditation by ACEJMC. The date of the unit’s most recent review is provided, as well as the distinction of accredited or reaccredited.  Accredited denotes an initial review; reaccredited is self-evident. Beginning with schools reviewed in 2012-13, a link is provided to the most recent site team report by an accreditation site team. [In some cases, not all programs within the unit were reviewed; in these instances, the areas reviewed are shown in brackets.]

ACEJMC does not rate or rank programs. Some units offer degrees in addition to those listed here. ACEJMC does not accredit programs leading to the Ph.D.

Accreditation evaluations normally are made by ACEJMC at six-year intervals. An asterisk (*) beside a school's listing indicates that the school has received a one-year delay of its accreditation visit.

Links to websites and email are provided where available for the convenience of users only. ACEJMC takes no responsibility for the accuracy or maintenance of websites belonging to other entities. Please notify Cindy Reinardy if you encounter outdated or inoperable links.
