New York College of Health Professions > Accreditation and Approvals

The following programs offered by New York College of Health Professions are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM):

  1. Master of Acupuncture
  2. Master of Acupuncture with a Chinese herbal medicine specialization [currently named Master of Science in Oriental Medicine]

At its August 2021 meeting, ACAOM placed New York College of Health Professions’ master’s programs on Probation for failing to demonstrate compliance with criteria across each of ACAOM’s accreditation standards. Probation is a sanction used by ACAOM to alert the institution that if it does not substantially correct deficiencies by the end of the probationary period, accreditation status could be in jeopardy consistent with ACAOM’s Commission Actions Policy.

Accreditation status and notes may be viewed on the ACAOM Directory.

ACAOM is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the specialized accreditation agency for institutions/programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners.

ACAOM does not accredit any programs at the undergraduate/bachelor level.
