National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships

In 2012, Northwest Iowa Community College received accreditation and certification for our concurrent enrollment programs from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). 

Established in 1999 in response to the dramatic increase in concurrent enrollment courses throughout the country, NACEP is a national accrediting organization that supports its members by providing standards of excellence, research, communication and advocacy.

Concurrent enrollment (also called dual enrollment or dual credit) programs deliver rigorous curricula to a broad range of students. They simultaneously provide ongoing professional development to America’s most talented teachers.

As concurrent enrollment programs continue to flourish across the country, an ever broader audience is taking note of NACEP members. We serve students, parents, educators and policy-makers interested in learning more about this innovative and proven concurrent enrollment model.
