Accreditation for BS Programs in Animal Science

Accreditation for BS Programs in Animal Science

Implementation of the ASAS Accreditation Program continues to move forward. After the Proposed Standards of Accreditation were posted for public comment, an edited version was approved and adopted by the Board of Directors in Fall 2020. The Accreditation Standards for Animal Science Programs are available online.

An important next step of implementation includes seating the membership for the newly formed Animal Science Council on Accreditation (ASCoA). Accreditation relies on capable and committed volunteers to serve on the Council that consists of Animal Science professionals committed to the next generation. For more information please visit the Accreditation website .

Council applicant deadline is March 15, 2021.
