Companion Documents to the Accreditation Standards

There are often questions about what is meant by each item in the Accreditation Standards.  The Accreditation Committee has put together the following companion documents to help applicant programs understand the intent and concept of the Standards in each area.  These are not prescriptive, and are intended to help the applicant programs to gain insight into how their own program will state the processes, policies, and procedures to meet the standards.  Please note that many of these statements in these documents were written for Full Accreditation with demonstrated outcomes.  For Provisional Accreditation, your program needs to focus on how the Standards will be met and outcomes demonstrated over the next few years.  Download by clicking on the links:
