One of the components in the reaffirmation process is the Compliance Certification Document. In order for our accreditation to be reaffirmed, JMU is required to conduct a comprehensive audit to assess if we are in compliance with accreditation requirements of the Commission on Colleges. JMU must be in compliance with the standards contained in the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement.

This includes:

  • The Principle of Integrity
  • Core Requirements
  • Comprehensive Standards
  • Federal Requirements

These standards reflect basic expectations that require a narrative statement with links to supporting evidence.

The compliance certification document and accompanying on-site visit occurs every ten years. Our most recent reaffirmation of accreditation in 2013 was a successful combined effort from the JMU community.
