Accreditation Workshop

The Accreditation Workshop provides an opportunity for participants to gain a better understanding of the Commission's standards and procedures, as well as to share experiences with other schools in the accreditation process.


Be sure to visit ACCSC's Online Training Center for additional training on the accreditation process.

Pre-Workshop Application:  Initial Applicant Schools

The Pre-Workshop Application for Initial Applicant Schools is the first step required for any institution seeking initial accreditation from ACCSC, or for any institution currently accredited by another institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education that is seeking initial accreditation from ACCSC.

The accreditation process begins with attendance at an Accreditation Workshop where the Commission provides training and resources which will assist schools as they strive towards a meaningful self-evaluation and on-site evaluation experience.

  • Schools currently accredited by ACCSC will be assigned to an Renewal of Accreditation Workshop based upon their scheduled renewal date.

  • Initial applicants may elect to attend any of ACCSC's Initial Accreditation Workshops to fulfill the workshop requirement.

Online Registration is available for both the Initial and Renewal Workshops.

Required Accreditation Workshop Materials

In order for this to be a meaningful training experience, participants registered to attend the upcoming Accreditation Workshop must download the Accreditation Workshop Materials and the current Standards of Accreditation. Participants are expected to have ready access to both documents at the workshop.

ACCSC strives to be a paperless organization and as such does not print any workshop materials. Please ensure that you are downloading the correct materials for the workshop you are attending.
