NWCCU Logo stacked

The University of Idaho is the state’s oldest, constitutionally mandated, land-grant institution. All of our regional, national and specialized accreditations are recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). In addition to the above specialized accreditations, the University of Idaho also is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

Why Accreditation Matters

Accreditation is an important topic for aspiring professionals. Attending a university that has received proper accreditation ensures that your curriculum has met the rigorous standards and high expectations set forth by well-respected higher education authorities. Accreditation affords Universities the chance to identify opportunities for continuous improvement while constantly strengthening their programs. Many agree that accreditation standards are the foundation of the profession and they are the driving force that raises the bar for excellence and professionalism in America’s schools, agencies and businesses. 

CHEA & CIQG logo

Accreditation provides an indication that your degree is not a product of a degree mill. According to the CHEA, “Degree mills and accreditation mills mislead and harm. In the U.S., degrees and certificates from mills may not be acknowledged by other institutions when students seek to transfer or go to graduate school. Employers may not acknowledge degrees and certificates from degrees mills when providing tuition assistance for continuing education. “Accreditation” from an accreditation mill also can mislead students and the public about the quality of an institution. In the presence of degree mills and accreditation mills, students may spend a good deal of money and receive neither an education nor a useable credential. Read more on CHEA’s website.

Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)

The University of Idaho, College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, Teacher Preparation Program (EPP) is currently accredited at the national level through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and at the state level by the Idaho State Board of Education – Professional Standards Commission (ID-PSC).

Institutional Recommendations

 

The ID-PSC makes recommendations to the State Board of Education and renders decisions that provide Idaho with competent, qualified, ethical educators dedicated to rigorous standards, pre-K-12 student achievement, and improved professional practice.

CAEP accreditation provides assurance that the educator preparation program meets or exceeds rigorous national standards and that candidates receive comprehensive preparation as high-quality P-12 teachers and administrators. CAEP advances equity and excellence in educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning.
