The National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), founded in 1944, is an accrediting organization of colleges, schools and universities in the United States. The organization establishes standards for graduate and undergraduate degrees. Member institutions complete periodic peer review processes to become, and remain, accredited. NASAD accreditation should not be confused with regional accreditation.

Standards for Accreditation[edit]

The National Association for Schools of Art and Design has stringent criteria for accrediting schools. For example, the NASAD requires that schools clearly publish their tuition rates and course descriptions.[1] In addition, board members assess the schools' art curricula and promote new standards to advance art education.[2]

NASAD Institutional Members[edit]

As of October 12, 2006 the National Association of Schools of Art and Design has 268 accredited institutional members:[3]
