Accreditation Actions Summary

ARC-PA Commission meetings occur three times a year. Decisions on accreditation actions are made by a majority vote of ARC-PA commissioners at which a quorum must be present. Adverse actions such as probation or withdrawal of accreditation require a two-thirds vote. Accreditation decisions are based on the programs’ compliance with the accreditation Standards and adherence to ARC-PA policies for accredited programs.
