Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA)

Country: United States
Member profile:

CEA accredits English language programs in colleges and universities (public and private) and independent language schools in the United States and internationally. CEA's mission is to promote excellence in the field of English language teaching and administration, as well as to protect the interests of students, through accreditation of English language programs and institutions worldwide. CEA achieves its mission by using widely-held standards to foster continuous program development through a rigorous process of regular self-assessment and peer evaluation. Sites that meet the CEA Standards for English Language Programs and Institutions can be accredited. In 2010, the U.S. government passed legislation requiring that all English language training programs be accredited in order to admit foreign students. CEA currently accredits more than 300 sites inside the U.S. and worldwide.
