WVU Five-Year Teacher 
Education Program

  1. CAEP does not accredit individual licensure areas.
  2. The WVU EPP is currently accredited by NCATE, and is undergoing CAEP accreditation review for the first time.
  3. Under the EPP, all individual programs must be “state approved”. Most seek to become “nationally recognized” by their specialized professional association (SPA) affiliated with CAEP.
  4. Some programs under that EPP are accredited by another accrediting agency, which has the accrediting authority from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or the US Department of Education (e.g., CACREP, ASHS, NASAD, NASM).

(Please Note:  The Five-Year Teacher Education Program will no longer be accepting students beyond the freshmen class entering in Fall 2016. Later groups (i.e., In-coming Freshmen of Fall 2017 and beyond) are encouraged to pursue other WVU Teacher Preparation Program options available at that time.)

Students will learn to integrate what one teaches with how it is taught and will receive more than 1,000 hours of experience in public school classrooms.
