CSAB/CSAC, Accreditation of Computer Science, Accreditation Standards
CSAB/CSAC provides professional accreditation of computer science bachelor's degree programs in the United States. As of October 2000, 159 institutions held this accreditation. By our count, over 80% of the accredited programs were offered by departments which also offer graduate programs in computer science. This means that few small colleges are represented. Our intent in this work is to give the small college audience an up-to-date guide to the recently-revised CSAB/CSAC accreditation standards. The guide is not comprehensive; we emphasize those issues we believe to be of greatest interest to small colleges and address them from the perspective we have gained from our own recent accreditation evaluation.
