Supplementing JMU’s general accreditation, all undergraduate and graduate degrees offered by the School of Art and Design are professionally accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). 


NASAD is the only accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education covering the whole field of art and design, and provides a basis for public recognition of an institution’s quality. JMU has been accredited by NASAD since 1981.
