Zayed University was named in honor of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the country's first president and founder. On 30 June 2008, it was announced that Zayed University had been granted accreditation by the U.S.-based Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Zayed University is currently engaged in the self-study process and expects to confirm accreditation in 2013.
