Iowa State's undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Community and Regional Planning (BSCRP) and graduate Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) degree programs are nationally accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board of the American Institute of Certified Planners and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning.
Why does accreditation matter?
Accreditation evaluates and recognizes an educational institution's performance and quality. Graduation from an accredited program establishes that you have met the educational standards of the professional planning organizations. Both the BSCRP and MCRP programs were reaccredited in 2008 and will be reviewed again in 2012.
