National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) Accreditation
The University of Idaho is currently conducting a self study that will lead to NACEP accreditation. All dual credit courses must therefore be designed in accordance with NACEP standards.
“NACEP is a professional organization for high schools and colleges that fosters and supports rigorous concurrent enrollment. Established in 1999 in response to the dramatic increase in concurrent enrollment courses throughout the country, NACEP serves as a national accrediting body and supports all members by providing standards of excellence, research, communication, and advocacy.”
