PAB ACCREDITATION INFORMATION


URBAN + ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING ACCREDITATION:

The Planning Accreditation Board (PAB) accredits university programs in North America leading to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in planning.  PAB standards are developed with input from the public and our sponsoring organizations: the American Planning Association (APA); APA’s American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP); and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP).


PUBLIC INFORMATION POLICY:

PAB standards require a program to routinely provide reliable information to the public on its performance, specifically: student achievement as determined by the program; the cost for a full-time student for one academic year; student retention and graduation rates, and number of degrees produced; the percentage of students who pass the AICP exam; and the employment rate of full-time graduates at one year of graduation.
