National Accreditation

Locally, the National Center for Academic Accreditation and evAluation (NCAAA) is responsible for determining standards and procedures for accreditation and quality assurance for postsecondary institutions and programs within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It is an autonomous body directly responsible to the Higher Council of Education and aims at improving the quality of private and governmental higher education program offerings. The NCAAA accredits Institutions and Programs for all disciplines.

Thanks to the collaborative effort of PSU management, academic and non-academic units, orchestrated by the EAAC, PSU currently has merited NCAAA accreditation for the institution and its programs. More recent degree programs are prepping for their turns for NCAAA accreditation.
