The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership at Walden University is dedicated to enhancing educator effectiveness. Walden University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for a period of 7 years, from April 24, 2012, to June 30, 2019. In 2013, NCATE merged with the Teacher Education Accreditation Council to form the Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Preparation (CAEP).

Walden University is eligible for and will seek accreditation based on CAEP standards beginning in fall 2018.
"Thanks to my Walden education, I am an effective administrator who enjoys facilitating professional development."
Walden is approved by the Minnesota Board of Teaching to offer a program leading to initial licensure in Elementary Education. Candidates must pass the required Minnesota Teacher Licensure Exams (MTLEs) before Walden can recommend candidates to the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) for the license. Candidates are responsible for completing any other Minnesota requirements beyond Walden’s state-approved program and MDE is solely responsible for reviewing applications and issuing licenses.
Individuals interested in an elementary education licensure in states other than Minnesota may qualify by virtue of completing a state-approved teacher preparation program; however, individuals must review their state’s regulations to ensure the program meets all requirements, paying particular attention to any requirements specific to out-of-state program completers.
Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representation or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure or endorsement.
