Sino-American CHEPD Program
Two Countries. Two Universities. Two Degrees.
Since 2001, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the China Center for International Educational Exchange (CCIEE) have been proud to offer the Sino-American Cooperation in Higher Education and Professional Development (CHEPD) Program. Participants in the CHEPD 1+2+1 Program earn two degrees—one from their Chinese home institution and their U.S. host institution.
The CHEPD 1+2+1 Program is the largest program of its kind. Recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a Program of Excellence, it is one of most important platforms for cooperation between Chinese and American universities. Since its inception, over 150 AASCU and Chinese institutions have participated, and over 4,000 Chinese students have successfully completed the program.
The University of North Texas (UNT) joined the Sino-American Cooperation in Higher Education and Professional Development (CHEPD) 1+2+1 Program in 2012. UNT is the only institution in the State of Texas to participate in the Sino-American CHEPD Program.
