The Value of Accreditation

NCATE logoThe Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership at Walden University is dedicated to enhancing educator effectiveness. Walden University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for a period of 7 years, from April 24, 2012, to June 30, 2019. NCATE accreditation is a nationally recognized standard of excellence in professional education for the preparation of teachers, administrators, and other P–12 school professionals and indicates that a university has met rigorous standards set by the profession and members of the public.

In 2013, NCATE merged with the Teacher Education Accreditation Council to form the Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Preparation (CAEP). CAEP is the single specialized accreditor for educator preparation and administers NCATE accreditation. Walden University is eligible for and will seek accreditation based on CAEP standards beginning in fall 2018.

Note on certification and licensure: Acceptance of education degrees from Walden University by individual states for the satisfaction of certification or licensure requirements rests with each state. Walden’s advisors can provide individuals with basic guidelines and other information about state requirements. It remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with the regulations and other requirements for the state in which he or she resides.

Prospective Alabama students: State Authorization to provide a program related to the preparation of teachers or other P-12 school/system personnel does not indicate eligibility for an Alabama professional educator or professional leadership certificate. Applicants who complete an educator preparation program at a non-Alabama institution must apply for an Alabama professional educator or professional leadership certificate through the Alabama Certificate Reciprocity Approach. Current requirements may be found at www.alsde.edu.
