Center for Regional Programs receives accreditation
Dr. Michael Bowman, interim dean, Center for Regional Programs, announced that the Center for Regional Programs has received accreditation from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). ASU is one of six institutions that demonstrated commitment to offering high quality concurrent enrollment programming. NACEP is a professional organization for high schools and colleges that fosters and supports concurrent enrollment. NACEP serves as a national accrediting body and supports all members by providing standards of excellence, research, communication and advocacy. ASU currently partners with Valley View High School Jonesboro High School, Nettleton High School and Greene County Tech High School in Paragould in concurrent enrollment classes. Concurrent classes are university courses taught face-to-face in high schools. High school students enrolled in the program receive both university and high school credit simultaneously, and this credit may be used to fulfill university general education requirements. NACEP accreditation distinguishes a select group of 53 high-quality concurrent enrollment programs nationwide. The intensive accreditation process includes a comprehensive, programmatic self-study; documentation of adherence to the standards; and a peer review by experienced, accredited members of NACEP. The organizationís standards represent nationally-acknowledged best practices ensuring that the college courses offered in the high schools are the same as those offered by the sponsoring college. For details, see the NewsPage release.
