While ACM is under review for regional accreditation by the New England Commission on Higher Education (NECHE), one of its longest-standing university partners, Northern Illinois University (NIU), has generously agreed to serve as ACM’s School of Record, providing course-by-course equivalencies and accredited transcripts to ACM students as needed. Because of this, students who enroll as Students at Large (non-degree-seeking students) with NIU are eligible to apply for private student loans that can be used towards their ACM program tuition and fees. Please visit the Transcripts & Schools of Record page for more detail.

Interested students should contact ACM’s Office of Admissions at or 800-221-2051 as soon as possible for more information on what steps are needed to begin the process and/or with any questions.
