Model Program Accreditation Standards (2020)
The Model Program Accreditation Standards for College Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities were finalized in September, 2020, following extensive development, refinement and review by hundreds of stakeholders. A final report to Congress will be written describing the process that led to these final standards. The report is expected to be completed and published in early 2021.
In 2020, researchers at the University of Aveiro in Portugal translated the Model Program Accreditation Standards for College Programs for Student with ID. The release of the Portuguese edition of the Standards coincided with the first inclusive higher education program for students with ID in Portugal.
