Binghamton University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Our teacher preparation programs are registered by the New York State Education Department and meet the Regulations of the Commissioner for the Registration of Curricula in Teacher Education. We are currently seeking national accreditation from the Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP).

Teacher Education

In September 2010, TEAC granted Continuing Accreditation to Binghamton University's Teacher Education programs for a period of 10 years (until September 2020). This accreditation certifies that we provided evidence that our programs are designed to prepare competent, caring and qualified educators dedicated to their profession and to diverse learning communities, consistent with TEAC’s Standards and Quality Principles for Teacher Education Programs.

Educational Leadership

In October 2013, TEAC and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) awarded full national accreditation to our Educational Leadership program for a period of seven years (through October 2020). This recognition means that our Educational Leadership advanced certificate program meets all quality standards and expectations of both New York state and TEAC/CAEP.
