Standards and Accreditation

National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP)

Program quality standards are the basis for accreditation and a framework for program development.

The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) is the sole recognized entity nationally for the accreditation of dual credit programs. As dual credit partnerships expand across Connecticut, it is critical that all concurrent enrollment programs are high quality. Therefore, the CSDE has engaged in a three-year contract with NACEP through November 2026 to support Connecticut institutions of higher education (IHEs) and their K-12 partners to implement best practices with respect to dual credit programs and for the IHEs to attain NACEP accreditation. Through this contract, NACEP will provide live webinars, virtual problems-of-practice collaborative meetings, preparation for accreditation sessions, and two intensive in-person institutes on program quality and accreditation.
