About Us


The USF College of Education is proud to be nationally accredited by NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education). In 2013 NCATE became the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The College of Education will undergo an accreditation review under the new CAEP standards in spring 2020. Accreditation is a voluntary process designed to ensure high-quality practices through a rigorous evaluation process consisting of self-evaluation, on-site accreditation evaluators and ongoing assessment.

CAEP requires that accredited institutions provide data on pass rates on professional exams, graduation rates, employment, teaching effectiveness and satisfaction surveys. To view the 2016 Title II Reports, visit the U.S. Department of Education Title II website

Each year the Florida Department of Education issues an Annual Program Performance Report (APPR) for each licensure program. The reports include data on employment, retention, measures of teaching effectiveness and teacher evaluations for our graduates. To view the APPRs for each USF College of Education licensure program, go to Annual Program Performance Reports and select University of South Florida and the program year from the drop down menus.

The USF Post Graduation Outcomes Hub provides additional information regarding earnings and employment.
