Ohio Christian University has an institutional commitment to ensuring the highest quality in program offerings for students seeking education degrees. All of our programs at OCU have achieved accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, HLC and the Online Learning Consortium, OLC. All of the programs offered by the OCU's School of Education department are also fully accredited by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, ODHE.
In addition to these exceptional standards, The School of Education department prepares our programs to achieve special accreditation from the CAEP Accreditation Council. This specialized accreditation from CAEP requires rigorous and complex oversight for achievement. New programs may be in the process of acquiring CAEP accreditation.
