2 New Programs Receive CFLE Approval


Two new programs now meet the criteria for the Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) credential: the human development and family studies undergraduate program at Indiana State University and the human development and family relations undergraduate program at the University of Colorado Denver

Additionally, eight programs recently renewed their CFLE-approved program status for an additional 5-year period. This includes the following seven undergraduate programs: Abilene Christian University, Family Studies; California State University–Long Beach, Family Life Education; Eastern Kentucky University, Child & Family Studies; Freed-Hardeman University, Child & Family Studies; Mid-Atlantic University, Family Studies; University of Maine, Child Development & Family Relations; and the University of Montevallo, Family and Consumer Sciences. The human services graduate program at Lubbock Christian University was also renewed.   

In April, NCFR reported that human services undergraduate program at Johnson University also became CFLE-approved for the first time, and two programs were renewed as a CFLE-approved program for five years.

More than 130 degree programs at university and colleges throughout the United States and Canada have been CFLE-approved by NCFR.

NCFR, which administers the CFLE credential, recognizes regionally accredited schools offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs with course work that includes content covering the 10 Family Life Education content areas required for approval as a provisional CFLE. NCFR approval allows graduates of these programs the opportunity to apply for provisional CFLE certification without taking the CFLE exam.
