Pre-Approval of Academic Courses

Academic course pre-approval is a voluntary process by which graduate and undergraduate programs can identify which of their course offerings would be accepted towards the academic eligibility requirements for certification.

The pre-approval process evaluates a program's course(s) utilizing course descriptions, syllabi, and other materials to make a determination as to whether or not the course fulfills requirements. If pre-approved, academic programs can provide assurance to their students that their course will meet the certifications requirements.
