CSM ACCE Accreditation

The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) is the body that accredits construction and construction management programs. ACCE was established in 1974 to be a leading global advocate of quality construction education, and to promote, support, and accredit quality construction education programs around the world.  ACCE Accreditation Standards

In February 2013, The Board of Trustees of the American Council for Construction Education announced the initial accreditation of the Construction Science and Management (CSM) program at Texas State University for a period of five (5) years. This five-year term is the maximum granted for an initial accreditation.  See the 2012 July - CSM Initial Self-Evaluation Study.

In Spring 2018, the CSM program was re-accredited for the maximum period of six (6) years with the next program accreditation scheduled for the Spring of 2024. To prepare for the re-accreditation, a 2017 June - CSM Re-Accreditation Self-Evaluation Study was written and approved by the ACCE, which cleared the way for a site visit. This site visit was conducted between October 14-17, 2017 by an ACCE appointed "Visiting Team" consisting of three members plus one member-in -training.  The re-accreditation was granted for six years with three yearly progress reports to address concerns.  2018-2020 - First, Second & Third Year's Progress Reports

The next accreditation visit is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2023.
