Accredited Institutional Membership

Institutional Membership signifies accreditation. Institutions eligible to apply for Membership include independent dance schools, colleges, universities, two year institutions, non-degree-granting institutions (precollegiate or postsecondary), and institutions offering graduate work only.

Associate Membership is granted to baccalaureate and/or graduate degree-granting institutions, community/junior colleges, and postsecondary non-degree-granting institutions applying for the first time that meet all curricular standards and all other applicable standards of the Association, and which are developing in areas related to purposes or operations. Associate Membership is valid for up to five years. At the end of this period, such institutions will be required to demonstrate substantial progress in areas under development and to satisfy all criteria for Membership.

Membership is granted to institutions meeting all of the standards of the Association. Institutions approved for Membership are granted five year periods of accreditation. At the end of five years, such institutions are expected to apply for renewal of Membership. Institutions approved for renewal of Membership are granted ten year periods of accreditation.

The standards for institutional Membership are published in the NASD Handbook.
