Jamia Millia Islamia had been ranked A in the first cycle of NAAC review in 2015.

JMI Vice Chancellor Professor Najma Akhtar said: "This milestone for the university reflects the sheer hard-work and untiring effort by all members of the university including the teachers, non-teaching staff, students and alumni. I personally extend my deep gratitude to all of them and hope that we will not only maintain this grading in the future but will also keep on working hard to improve our performance in academic, research and other areas”.
According to information obtained through an RTI application, the university had spent over Rs 26 lakh for arranging a "regal treatment" for the council team which came for an inspection in 2015. The university had said then that its guest house was being renovated at that time and the entire 20-member team had to be housed at one location so that they could coordinate among themselves. They had booked the nearest available hotel at that time.
