The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is a regional accrediting agency that accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region and is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

Many of the University's programs are also accredited by professional accrediting bodies, including the American Psychological Association (APA); American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Council on Academic Accreditation (ASHA / CAA); Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP); Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP); and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Programs that prepare graduates to be a licensed professional in schools are approved by the District of Columbia State Education Agency (SEA). These same programs - along with the MSW in School Social Work Program - are part of Gallaudet's Professional Education Unit which is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

In addition, many programs are reviewed and recognized by the following specialized professional associations (SPAs) as part of NCATE's accreditation process: Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI); Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP); Council for Exceptional Children (CEC); National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC); National Association of School Psychologists (NASP); National Council for Social Studies (NCSS); National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE); National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM); and National Science Teachers Association (NSTA).

Our Deaf Education program is approved by the Council on the Education of the Deaf (CED) which allows graduates to become CED certified.
