On June 5, 2014, at the CAEP Board of Directors meeting, the CAEP Standards for Advanced Programs, were approved and adopted. The Standards for Advanced Programs mirror the same principles of rigor, evidence and outcomes focus of the CAEP Standards.
The CAEP Standards for Advanced Programs were based on the recommendations provided by the Standards Standing Committee. Public review of a draft of the Standards for Advanced Programs supported the acceptance of the Standards as presented in the first draft. Thank you to those who provided feedback.

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) submitted an application to The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). On June 9-10, 2014, the committee reviewed the application and is recommending to the CHEA Board of Directors that CAEP be granted recognition. The recommendation from the committee will be considered and acted upon by the CHEA Board at its meeting on September 29-30, 2014.
If approved by the CHEA Board:
The scope of CAEP’s work is the accreditation of educator preparation providers at the certificate/licensure, associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, post-baccalaureate, and doctoral levels in degree-granting institutions of higher education. This includes programs offered in the United States, including distance education programs.
CAEP has also submitted an application to be recognized by the United States Department of Education.
