Accreditation & Quality Assurance

All academic programs offered at the American University of Nigeria received initial accreditation from the National Universities Commission (NUC) in 2007 and 2008. The NUC’s appointed teams of peers who reported their findings to the NUC examined all the programs.

All programs have received FULL accreditation. As an American institution, AUN aspires to the highest standards; AUN strives to comply with American accreditation standards, as outlined by the major regional accrediting bodies in the US. 

AUN staff and faculty participate in ongoing dialogues, workshops and seminars — in Nigeria, the US, and on the international accreditation circuit — to ensure that AUN remains at the cutting edge of quality assurance standards while adhering to all laws, rules and regulations of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
