The University of Connecticut is a New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) accredited institution.
The Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut is accredited based on the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards, through the CAEP Accreditation System, from 2015 to 2022. Formed in 2013, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) is the single specialized accreditor for educator preparation and administers NCATE accreditation.
This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs, Conn., and regional campuses. However, the accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
The Neag School of Education will undergo a site visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on May 1-3, 2022.
