Accredited Institution Details
Key to Codes:
ITP  Initial teacher preparation level only; includes all programs at the baccalaureate or postbaccalaureate levels that prepare candidates for the first license to teach.
ADV  Advanced preparation level only; includes all programs at postbaccalaureate levels for (1) the continuing education of teachers who have previously completed initial preparation or (2) the preparation of other professional school personnel.
Accreditation for five years: All standards are met, no serious problems exist across standards, and the state retains a five-year cycle.
Accreditation for seven years: All standards are met and no serious problems exist across standards.
Accreditation for two years with a focused visit: When at least one standard is not met and problems are centered in the unmet standard, a focused visit in two years will be required. If the standard continues to be unmet after the focused visit, accreditation will be revoked.
Accreditation for two years with a full visit: When one or more standards are not met and serious problems exist across standards, a full visit will be requested. If the standard(s) continues to be unmet after the full visit, accreditation will be revoked.
Defer decision: The UAB will defer a decision if the Board of Examiners (BOE) team recommended that any standard was met for which the UAB did not accept the team's recommendation. A supplemental rejoinder related to the new unmet standard(s) will be submitted for review during the next UAB meeting. If the standard(s) continues to be unmet after the supplemental rejoinder, accreditation will be granted for 18 months with either a focused or full visit.
Deny accreditation: When one or more standards are not met and the preponderance of evidence indicates problems across multiple standards by an institution seeking accreditation for the first time.
Revoke accreditation: When one or more standards are not met and the preponderance of evidence indicates problems across multiple standards by an institution seeking to continue accreditation.
