Annual Report

The ACPHA Annual Report is due by December 18, 2020.  The Annual Report covers all aspects of program life and includes any changes, in the past academic year, at the program level and how those changes affect the ability of the program to continue to meet accreditation standards. The revised report format was revised slightly and streamlined for simpler reporting. Please let the ACPHA Office know if you have any questions. Be sure to include a completed Financial Profile and Student Profile with your report. These documents are on the website under the RESOURCES menu and the ACPHA ANNUAL AND SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE DOCUMENTS section. They are also hyperlinked in this message. Please do not use a previous version of any of the documents – only the current documents that are on the website!

Nominations

The Commission is seeking nominations for two (2) Commissioners. We need one representative from any of our 2 or 4-year Programs and one representative from Industry. These nominations would commence with the Winter of 2021 Commission Meeting. 

Commission members serve a three-year term and may not serve for two consecutive terms.  If you are interested please send us an email requesting more information! We need your formal Nomination Form before January 31, 2021.

Virtual Visits

The ACPHA Executive Committee presented their accreditation visit plan to the full Commission at the July 22, 2020 meeting for discussion and vote. The full ACPHA Commission voted to conduct virtual site visits moving forward until it can be deemed safe for all involved to continue with in-person visits. Virtual visits will only be conducted for programs that are due for reaccreditation. At this time, ACPHA will not conduct a virtual site visit for a program seeking initial accreditation. Programs seeking initial accreditation should contact the ACPHA office for more information. Check the website periodically for changes and updates.
