About membership

The ECICEL welcomes membership applications from educational institutions which offer predominantly open and distance or online courses. Admittance to the membership for institutions, educational providers and agencies and companies seeking membership is subject to approval by the ECICEL Committee. These must be recognized in their own country or region and must conduct educational operations in accordance with codes of ethics in distance learning.

Membership is a system of review which periodically evaluates the extent to which an institution achieves its own objectives and meets the standards determined by ECICEL. Evaluation addresses operational and curricular issues fundamental to the delivery of quality education and training, via the medium of online, distance or open learning.

An Approved Member may acknowledge its ECICEL membership and display the ECICEL Logo on its website, prospectus, course-materials, course-completion or graduation certificates, and on other publicity or promotional material.

To apply for ECICEL Membership, please complete and submit the online application form.  If you have any other questions, please contact us.

Once you have read all the information on this website and in the Accreditation, should you still have any questions you are invited to contact our office by email.
