ACME Accredited Programs


All midwifery education programs that confer eligibility on the graduate to take the national certification exam administered by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) must be accredited or preaccredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). ACME Accreditation Action Notices can be found here. Individual accreditation status of each program is listed below. Accreditation as defined by the US Department of Education, “…the status of public recognition that an accrediting agency grants to an educational institution or program that meets the agency's standards and requirements.” [34 CFR §602.3 Definitions] Preaccreditation as defined by the US Department of Education, "the status of public recognition that an accrediting agency grants to an educational institution or program for a limited period of time that signifies the agency has determined that the institution or program is progressing towards accreditation and is likely to attain accreditation before the expiration of that limited period of time." [34 CFR §6 02.3 Definitions]
