The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) is the sole agency authorized to accredit US professional degree programs in architecture.

What is accreditation? Accreditation, in general, is a process of external quality review used to scrutinize colleges, universities and educational programs for quality assurance and quality improvement.

There are currently 115 schools offering NAAB accredited professional programs in architecture, leading to the Doctor of Architecture, Master of Architecture or Bachelor of Architecture degree. In addition, 3 schools, intending to establish professional degree programs in architecture, have been granted candidacy status by the NAAB.

NAAB administers the EESA-NCARB program, which evaluates the credentials of foreign educated and broadly experienced architects against the NCARB Education Standard.

The mission of the NAAB is leadership in, and the establishment of, educational quality assurance standards to enhance the value, relevance, and effectiveness of the architectural profession.
