Colorado Christian University's Music Accreditation Makes National Cut

This month officials at Colorado Christian University announced the renewal of the School of Music as a member of the National Association of Schools of Music. Of music schools across the nation that applied for renewal, CCU was among only 20 percent accepted by NASM's highly selective Commission on Accreditation.

NASM is considered the premier body for establishing national standards for undergraduate and graduate music degrees and other credentials, and the Commission is held in high regard for its extensive accreditation process based on a peer review by seasoned music educators.

CCU's accreditation kicked into high gear last November when the Commission voted to continue its membership, leaning primarily on the University's thorough and thoughtful recent self-study.

Founded in 1924, NASM is comprised of schools, conservatories, colleges, and universities with approximately 630 accredited institutional members. Visit nasm.arts-accredit.org to learn more.
