GRADING OF PROGRAMS
Unlike in many other countries, the process of accreditation by the NBA is a
“yes” or “no” type two part grading system of accreditation. Individual
programs shall be classified into one of the following categories:-

Accredited for Five years:- Excellent/Very good; meeting all accreditation
criteria or exceeding them.

Accredited for Three years:- Good; meeting the minimum criteria with
deficiencies being marginal and can be improved within a short time.


Not Accredited (NA): - Not ripe for accreditation, due to the seriousness of
the deficiencies.
