Accreditation

The Early Childhood programs are fully approved by the Illinois State Board of Education and nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). SIU is one of a minority of university teacher education programs in the country accredited by NCATE - the only nationally recognized accrediting group authorized by the U.S. Department of Education. This national accreditation facilitates certification in many other states. As a whole, SIU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
