Accreditation & Assessment

The College of Education’s professional education unit is committed to high quality teacher preparation and professional development, as indicated by our assessment system and successful history of state and national accreditation. 

Since 1970, we have maintained national accreditation with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the premier accrediting agency for education professionals. California State University, Fullerton is the only public institution in Orange County that offers professional education programs accredited by NCATE.

All of our programs that lead to an initial or advanced credential are also accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).

NCATE: National Council for Teacher Education

CTC: California Commission on Teacher Credentialling
