National Concurrent Enrollment Partnership Standards
National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships
The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) is a professional organization for high schools and colleges that fosters and supports rigorous concurrent enrollment. Established in 1999 in response to the dramatic increase in concurrent enrollment courses throughout the country, NACEP serves as a national accrediting body and supports all members by providing standards of excellence, research, communication, and advocacy. NACEP's "Standards" are measurable criteria that address quality in concurrent enrollment programs. The standards promote the implementation of policies and practices to ensure that: (1) Concurrent enrollment courses offered in the high school are the same as the courses offered on-campus at the sponsoring college or university; (2) Students enrolled in concurrent enrollment courses are held to the same standards of achievement as students in on-campus courses; and (3) Instructors teaching college or university courses through the concurrent enrollment program meet the academic requirements for faculty and instructors teaching in the sponsoring postsecondary institution. Additionally, the standards encourage greater accountability for concurrent enrollment programs through required impact studies, student surveys, and course and program evaluations. The standards are the basis for accreditation, but all concurrent enrollment programs can benefit by using the standards as a framework for program development.
