Educational accreditation is a two-pronged process for continuous improvement and evaluation of educational effectiveness based on self-evaluation followed by verification and validation. Accreditation Standards represent minimum requirements and agreed upon assessment methods to enable self-evaluation and assessment of outcomes. The accreditation process is designed to empower an educational program to achieve effective qualitative self-evaluation and success followed by a rigorous assessment conducted by highly qualified peers from the educational and professional communities. Accreditation helps foster public confidence and creates a means by which educational and governmental entities recognize and understand one another.
The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) awards, reaffirms and continues accreditation through a dynamic process of review and evaluation for compliance with the Requirements for Accreditation as reflected in the current editions of the CCE Accreditation Standards (for Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Programs/Solitary Purpose Chiropractic Institutions) and CCE Residency Accreditation Standards (for Residency Programs).
Normally, accreditation actions take place twice a year, at the Annual Council Meeting in January and the Semi-Annual Council Meeting in July. Please click on the links below to view the most recent actions by the Council. Questions should be directed to the CCE Administrative Office.
