UMUC's graduate Education department has been accepted as a candidate for Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation/National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (CAEP/NCATE) accreditation. This means that the department has met the preconditions for accreditation but is not yet accredited.
