Commission Action: Withdrawal of Accreditation for Non-Compliance with the Standards for Accreditation

The institution’s accreditation was withdrawn based on a show-cause hearing that included the report of the institution, material evidence applicable to the circumstances, and a face-to-face interview with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.  Although the Commission may have determined that the institution was in “substantial compliance” with one of more of the Standards for Accreditation, after carefully reviewing the relevant materials, the Commission determined that the institution was out of compliance with one or more of its Standards for Accreditation.  The judgment of “being in substantial compliance” or “being out of compliance” 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.  A public statement about the institution’s withdrawal status can be found here.
