Vincennes University’s Project EXCEL is the recipient of national accreditation, according to action taken Oct. 1, 2005 by Board of Directors of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) in St. Louis, Missouri. VU’s Project EXCEL is a dual credit/concurrent enrollment program offered through participating partner high schools throughout Indiana.
NACEP standards require that concurrent enrollment courses utilize the same course outline/syllabi, textbooks, grading standards, laboratory equipment and assignments, and evaluation/assessment measures as the courses taught on the college campus. Instructors who teach concurrent enrollment/dual credit courses must also meet the same academic standards that are established for adjunct faculty status at the offering institution. Extensive research and documentation was completed, compiled, and submitted to validate that Project EXCEL met the various criteria established for accreditation.
An application for reaccreditation was submitted in July, 2011, and approved by NACEP for the period 2012-2019.
