Educational Psychology accreditation information
NAU’s programs in Educational Psychology hold several accreditations
Accredited programs are important as you’re pursuing your degree in education. Learn with a leader at Northern Arizona University, where our Department of Educational Psychology programs are accredited by top accrediting bodies.
American Psychological Association (APA)
The Counseling/School Psychology Ph.D. program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association (APA). At its March 30-April 2, 2022 meeting, the APA Commission on Accreditation (CoA) voted to approve full accreditation of the doctoral Counseling/School Ph.D. program at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona, with its next site visit scheduled for 2031, 10 years from the date of the program’s last site visit. This decision is based on the CoA’s professional judgement that the program has demonstrated that it adheres to the Standards of Accreditation in Health Service Psychology (SoA). The current record indicates that a full review of the program is warranted within ten years of its last site visit, including interim reporting, to ensure continued adherence to the Standards.
To view the program’s accreditation status, see the APA-Accredited Programs website. Questions related to the program’s accreditation status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation:
