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) grants and renews accreditation through a dynamic process of review and evaluation for compliance with the Requirements for Accreditation as reflected in the current edition of the Standards for Doctor of Chiropractic Programs and Requirements for Institutional Status (Standards).
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 Commission. Questions should be directed to the CCE Administrative Office.
