News about January and July ARC-PA Commission Meetings
In order to maintain a steady workflow, and to address the increase in program applications, the Commission decided at its September 2015 meeting to temporarily conduct additional commission meetings in January and July, beginning July 2016. Programs on a September agenda may be selected to be reviewed at the July commission meeting, and programs on a March agenda may be selected to be reviewed at the January commission meeting. No initial provisional reviews or probation reviews are conducted at January or July commission meetings.
Programs may not ask for placement on the January or July agendas. Programs placed on the January or July agendas will not receive advanced notification of the placement to the earlier agenda. Programs will receive information about accreditation decisions from the January or July reviews following those meetings.
