The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), has conferred accreditation to the Counseling & Development Program housed in the Department of Counseling, Leadership, and Educational Studies at Winthrop University.

In July, 2016, the Counseling and Development Program received an eight-year period decision based on the board's extensive review of the self-study, the addendum to the self-study and the visiting team's report. This marks the third full accreditation of the Counseling & Development Program; the program was provided its initial accreditation on May 1, 2001.
