Process: Application, Candidacy, and Evaluation
NEASC/CIE's groundbreaking accreditation protocol, ACE, was launched in 2016 and has been successfully implemented in a growing number of our member schools. All CIE member schools will eventually transition from the 8th Edition protocol to ACE according to a schedule based on their current status in the accreditation cycle.
For more information about ACE Learning, please read the ACE Introduction. It explains the conceptual framework that underpins ACE, describes the various phases of the accreditation process, and summarizes the most significant differences to current protocols.
