ChildCare Education Institute Announces Articulation Agreement with Ashford University

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), a distance training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care industry, is proud to announce today an articulation agreement with Ashford University.

The articulation agreement allows CCEI students the opportunity to transfer credits earned to Ashford University.

In addition, CCEI students completing professional development courses also have the opportunity to transfer credit to Ashford University.
