The College of Education at California State University Dominguez Hills is accredited at the national level by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  This accreditation covers the preliminary and professional clear credential programs and the MA degree programs at CSU Dominguez Hills.   The Mission of CAEP (formerly the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education - NCATE) is to advance excellent educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning.
