Endorsement of academic programs is an assurance that a program meets the standards and requirements set forth by ACLP. Endorsement is a voluntary process of self-study and external review intended to evaluate, enhance, and publicly recognize academic programs which meet the standards prescribed by ACLP. The purpose of this process is to promote the interests of students through improving the quality of teaching, learning, and professional practice.
Students graduating from an endorsed program during the period of endorsement have the assurance that their coursework satisfies the 2019 coursework requirements for exam eligibility. They will still need to complete an eligibility assessment with ACLP, but will not have to have each course reviewed. Students who have graduated from or are enrolled in an ACLP-endorsed academic program during the period of endorsement must contact the ACLP office in order to start their Eligibility Assessment.
