At its March 2019 meeting, the Commission discussed several of its accreditation processes and developed a revised fee schedule in support of the work and resources required by the Commission to fulfill its mission and philosophy.  For initial provisional accredited programs, the updated initial provisional application fee is $30,000 (effective April 1, 2019).  The entire fee schedule is available here.

Appeals Fees

At its September 2017 meeting, the ARC-PA decided to make an adjustment to appeal fees.  The fee for reconsideration following an adverse action by the commission will remain $5,000.  The fee for a formal appeal hearing will increase from $8,000 to $12, 500. This fee adjustment will be effective January 1, 2018.

Fees for reconsideration of an accreditation action, fees for an appeal of an accreditation action and other expenses related to appeals are detailed in the ARC-PA appeals policy.

Late Fees

A 10% late fee will be charged to programs who are 45 days delinquent in their submission of their annual accreditation payment.
