Denied Candidacy

The institution was denied candidacy based on a show-cause hearing that included the report of the institution, material evidence applicable to the circumstances, and a face-to-face interview with the Commission.  After carefully reviewing the relevant materials, the Commission determined that the institution does not meet the Requirements of Affiliation and/or the evaluative Criteria for Candidacy.  The judgment of “does not meet” is a qualitative judgment made by the Commission, consisting of peers and members of the public.
