In keeping with its Policy on the Periodic Review of Accredited Institutions, the Commission regularly requests reports from its member and candidate institutions. Accredited institutions undergo comprehensive evaluations at least every ten years. Newly accredited institutions are revisited within five years. Institutions are subject to a variety of other monitoring mechanisms, including an annual report and an interim report for all accredited institutions, as well as focused visits and progress reports as deemed necessary by the Commission.
The nature and timing of such reviews vary in accordance with the circumstances at a given institution. If an institution undergoes a substantive change or if at any time its educational effectiveness is seriously questioned, the Commission reserves the right to review that institution’s accreditation without regard to any previously indicated time pattern.
