Supplemental Annual Report

Annual Questionnaire for Free-Standing Music Institutions of Higher Education

Due Annually by October 15

As stipulated by federal regulation in the Higher Education Act of 1965, NASM is required to collect the information requested in an annual questionnaire referred to as a Supplemental Annual Report. The questionnaire is sent annually from the NASM National Office to independent, free-standing institutions of higher education that offer professional education and training programs in music. Such institutions may or may not have regional or other institutional accreditation. These institutions may be degree-granting or non-degree-granting; they may be not-for-profit or proprietary.

Each September, NASM will forward via email notices of annual submission requirements to accredited institutional members. This email will include submission requirements, deadline, and location of the Supplemental Annual Report form (see link below to download).

Questions about the Supplemental Annual Report should be directed to Justin Medlen at the NASM National Office at 703-437-0700, extension 115, or by email at

If requested by the NASM Commission to submit the previous year’s Supplemental Annual Report, you may access the 2022 Supplemental Annual Report.
