New Policy for Multiple Delivery Methods
CACREP has developed a new policy for programs adding a new delivery method or offering an existing program through more than one delivery method. Similar to the Multiple Sites Policy, this new policy will help programs determine whether the alternative delivery constitutes a separate program or the same program. Read the policy here.
Argosy University Closure
The abrupt closure of Argosy University this month left over 700 counseling students without a program. CACREP has been working with accredited programs throughout the country to help place the master’s and doctoral students displaced. We have developed a specific Substantive Change Report format for programs absorbing students, and have encouraged programs to seek regulatory approval to allow for increased number of transfer credits. The situation continues to unfold, but it has been impressive to see how the counselor education community has stepped up to support the students and future leaders, and the faculty affected.
