UMB was first accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in 1921. The most recent on-site evaluation was April 2006.  The most recent Periodic Review Report was submitted in June 2011.

At its session on November 17, 2011, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education acted to accept the Periodic Review Report and to reaffirm accreditation.  The next evaluation visit is scheduled for 2016.

Documents relating to the 2006 site visit can be reviewed online or in hard copy at the Thurgood Marshall Law Library or the Health Sciences and Human Services Library.

In June 2002, the Committee on Substantive Change, on behalf of the commission, acted to accept the reports submitted by UMB and to include the distance education Web-based RN-BSN Program Option and the Web-based Post Master's Certificate in Nursing Informatics within the scope of the institution's accreditation.

In November 2001 the commission accepted a Periodic Review Report prepared by the campus, reaffirmed accreditation and commended the institution for progress to date. 

Programs in each professional school are also accredited.
