Two University of Iowa programs will continue to be accredited following studies reported to the state Board of Regents Wednesday in Ames.

The UI College of Law upheld its accreditation from the American Bar Association, being awarded continuing accreditation for its programs in July 2010. The Doctorate of Jurisprudence program and the LL.M. Program of international and Comparative Law were evaluated, according to the report. The approval of the college's programs is not fixed for any amount of time and visits to the departments may occur every seven years.

The UI Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program also maintained its accreditation following a self-study and an on-site visit by peer evaluator. The accrediting body, the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association, approved the program in August 2010.

The commission stipulated that UI officials limit the program's enrollment to three residents per year in order to keep accreditation.
