The institution was issued a Notation because the Commission determined the public should be notified that the conditions at the institution with respect to the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation are such that its candidacy or accreditation may be in jeopardy if current conditions continue or worsen. The Commission will closely monitor the institution and conduct a focused evaluation within two years to assess the institution’s success in addressing the identified concerns. Issuing a notation is a qualitative judgment made by the Commission, consisting of peers and members of the public that the institution meets the underlying purpose of the standard. In making this judgment the Commission gives principal attention to the statement of the standard for each of the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation.
