University of Pittsburgh’s College in High School program received national accreditation from The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) in May 2022.
As the nation’s only accrediting body for these unique and impactful dual enrollment/concurrent enrollment educational partnerships, NACEP’s standards serve as the model criteria for ensuring parity in faculty, course content, student outcomes and support. Receiving NACEP accreditation means an institution has met the nation’s most rigorous standard in concurrent enrollment program development, management, and evaluation across multiple, multifaceted program areas.
The NACEP Accreditation Commission also awarded 24 other programs with accreditation after a brief COVID pause, bringing the total number of NACEP accredited programs across the country to 134, spanning 26 states.
