Illinois State University Human Development and Family Science program meets standards for CFLE designation

The Human Development and Family Science bachelor program at Illinois State University has met the standards and criteria required for the provisional Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) designation from the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR). This program includes appropriate course work for each of the ten family life content areas required for the CFLE designation. Graduates of the Illinois State University undergraduate program now qualify to complete an abbreviated CFLE application process, which will save them time and money over taking the CFLE exam.

The program approval does not imply accreditation, but recognizes the inclusion of relevant course work for each of 10 family life content areas needed for the provisional Certified Family Life Educator designation.

The CFLE designation recognizes a broad, comprehensive range of issues constituting family life education. It acknowledges the preventive focus of family life education and assures that the designate has met or exceeded the high standards and criteria needed to provide quality family life education.
