Brigham Young University-Idaho Program Receives CFLE Approval

BYU Idaho

The Department of Home and Family at Brigham Young University–Idaho is the newest program to meet the criteria for the Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) credential. The department offers bachelor's degrees in child development and marriage & family studies.

In addition, the following undergraduate programs received renewal of their CFLE-approved program status: Towson University, Family and Human Services; University of Alabama Tuscaloosa, Human Development and Family Studies (Family Life Education and Advocacy concentration); and Utah State University, Family Life Studies (online).

Nearly 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.
