Accredited Planning Programs

As of January 1, 2015, PAB accredits 72 master’s and 16 bachelor’s programs at 76 North American universities.

PAB Policy on Accredited Degree Status
Students who graduate after the beginning of the fall term of the academic year in which the Site Visit occurs for a program subsequently granted accreditation, shall be considered to have graduated from an accredited program.

Any student enrolled at the time that the program held accreditation status (including probationary accreditation), and who earns the degree within three years from the effective date of the revocation of that status, is considered to be a graduate of an accredited program.

Public Information
PAB standards require a program to routinely provide reliable information to the public on its performance, specifically: student achievement as determined by the program; the cost for a fulltime student for one academic year; student retention and graduation rates, and number of degrees produced; the percentage of students who pass the AICP exam; and the employment rate of fulltime graduates at one year of graduation. The listing below includes inks to webpages where that information can be found.
