Accreditation Commission Statement on COVID-19 and NACEP Accreditation

The NACEP Accreditation Commission manages NACEP’s accreditation process, reviews Peer Review Team reports and makes accreditation decisions. The Commission operates as an autonomous unit of NACEP in close collaboration with the Board of Directors. The Commission's activities and peer review process are documented in the Accreditation Commission Policy and Procedures Manual. As of the end of the 2021-22 school year, there are 131 concurrent enrollment programs nationwide accredited by NACEP.

On June 13, 2018, the accredited program representatives voted to expand the Accreditation Commission from 9 to 12 members.
