Accreditation and Candidate Outcomes

Candidate Outcomes

The success of our degree and certificate programs is measured by the outcomes achieved by our graduates and program completers. A sample of our recent data is provided here. For additional information, please contact the College of Education Dean's Office at (660) 543-4272.


UCM's programs are fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges & Schools, and our teacher education programs have been authorized by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). UCM's professional education programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) through our site visit in Spring 2016 by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Although CAEP membership and Specialized Professional Association (SPA) reports are optional in Missouri, UCM is seeking CAEP accreditation, and a number of UCM's teacher education programs have also chosen to seek national recognition. Those programs currently nationally recognized or with reports pending include: Mathematics 9-12, Middle School 5-9, Physical Education K-12, Science, 9-12, Mild-Moderate Cross-Categorical Special Education K-12, Early Childhood Special Education Birth-grade 3, Severe Developmental Disabilities K-12, Educational Technology, Library Media Specialist K-12, and Literacy Education K-12 (Special Reading). UCM's Art and Music programs are nationally accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and the National Association of Schools of Music, respectively. Our Counselor Education programs are accredited by CACREP, the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs
