Withdrawal of Candidacy

The Commission determined, through the periodic review process, that the candidate institution no longer meets the Requirements of Affiliation and/or the evaluative Criteria for Candidacy.  The candidate institution was asked to “show cause” as to why it should not have its candidacy withdrawn.  The judgment of “no longer meets” is a qualitative judgment made by the Commission, consisting of peers and members of the public.  A public statement about the withdrawal of the institution’s candidacy can be found here.
