New and Renewed Academic Programs


Congratulations to the Bachelor of Science program in Child and Family Studies at Tarleton State University for recently becoming an NCFR CFLE-approved program. This degree program provides students with a strong foundation of knowledge, leadership skills, and cultural competence to work with children and families outside of the public school setting. Graduates of this program can now apply for the CFLE credential through the CFLE-approved program process once they have completed the identified CFLE coursework.

Additionally, the Child and Family Studies undergraduate program at the University of North Texas at Dallas renewed their CFLE-approved status.


Thank you to these programs for their dedication to Family Life Education. For a list of CFLE-approved programs, visit NCFR’s Degree Programs Guide. More than 140 degree programs at universities 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.
