Asian University for Women was established in Bangladesh through the Asian University for Women Act, 2006 (Act No. 40 of the year 2006). It is deemed as a recognized “International University” by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh. Below is a letter from the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh.
The New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) has determined that Asian University for Women is eligible to proceed with an application for candidacy for accreditation within two years. A determination of eligibility is not candidacy or accreditation, nor does it indicate a likelihood of eventual accreditation. Questions about eligibility and the accreditation process should be directed to the President of the Commission.
