Policy That Affects Incremental Credentialing

Policy Bodies

An array of entities and organizations can influence the move to an incremental credentialing system. The main ones include:

  • Government – federal
  • Government – state
  • State higher education systems, state coordinating boards
  • Accrediting organizations
  • Institutional entities, including boards of regents

Policy from other entities may also influence the move to incremental credentialing. Such entities include employers; labor unions, particularly in relation to apprenticeship programs; and community-based entities such as libraries, immigrant support centers, Goodwill centers, and others.
