Relay was granted accreditation in 2020 by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) (1140 19th St. NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036), a programmatic accrediting body for educator preparation programs that is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Many of Relay’s academic programs are designed to meet educational requirements for educator licensure. In compliance with US Department of Education regulations (§ 668.43(a)(5)(v) and § 668.43(c)), Relay has made determinations about whether its programs meet the educational requirements for educator licensure in each state. Educational requirements include coursework and clinical experience tied to coursework. Note that even though a program may meet these requirements, individual students must also meet state- and program-specific requirements for admission to and completion of an educator preparation program, and any other state licensure requirements (e.g., testing, background checks) to be eligible for licensure.
