Attendees will be responsible for transportation to and from the airport to the hotel and the Convention Center. We recommend booking a rental car for this event due to the distance from the airports serving the area.


This will be an abbreviated version of our more intensive institute, focusing on the national standards designed to enhance the quality of concurrent enrollment programs, along with a review of the accreditation application preparation and logistics, an in-depth look into our concurrent enrollment program (CEP) endorsement, and a brief review of the College-Provided Faculty Model (CPF) endorsement. A lunch will be provided during the session for registered attendees.

This session is designed for institutions looking to gain insight on the process, standards, and programs seeking re-accreditation to satisfy the Accreditation Institute attendance requirement. Programs seeking initial accreditation are highly encouraged to attend the two day Accreditation Institute.

This institute is open to all partners within a college enrollment partnership (administrator, program director/staff, superintendent, principal, high school teacher, school counselor, & faculty liaison).
