One of the coursework options available to AACAP members is the Certified Higher Education Professional (CHEP) in Admissions Credential. AACAP endorses this option for members seeking to earn recognition for their achievements and begin work toward their AACAP certification.

AACAP’s Admissions Credentials Committee conducts an annual review of the CHEP in Admissions competency standards and training courses and makes recommendations for the enhancement of the certification.

CHEP Certified professionals receive a certificate and a digital badge to share and showcase their achievements. Participating institutions are provided with digital recognition seals to demonstrate and display their commitment to admissions excellence.
