Council of Accreditation for Educator Preparation (CAEP)
Educator preparation programs at Wayne State College have a long history of national accreditation. Beginning in 1954 for all undergraduate education programs and 1962 for all graduate education programs, the College has earned continuous accreditation approval, first from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and currently from the Council of Accreditation for Educator Preparation (CAEP), following the merger of those two accrediting agencies in 2010. Wayne State College has currently been granted initial-licensure level accreditation with CAEP. This Accreditation status is effective between Fall 2019 and Fall 2024. The next site visit will take place in Spring 2024.
