The Pre-Workshop Application for Initial Applicant Schools is the first step for any institution seeking initial accreditation from ACCSC.

Workshop Materials for March 2024 Initial Accreditation Workshop Participants

The Pre-Workshop Application for Initial Applicant Schoolsmust be accepted in writing by ACCSC before the full-time on-site director or appropriate management team representative of each school seeking accreditation from ACCSC is invited to register for the mandatory Accreditation Workshop which is required in order to begin the initial accreditation process.

  • Pre-Workshop Applications and fees must be received by ACCSC at least seven (7) business days prior to the Initial Accreditation Workshop to allow proper time for review by ACCSC and for participants to prepare for the Accreditation Workshop. 
  • Applications received within seven (7) business days of an Initial Accreditation Workshop will be reviewed for a future Initial Accreditation Workshop.

In fulfilling its obligations as a recognized institutional accrediting body, ACCSC has the authority to establish eligibility criteria it deems appropriate and is under no obligation to consider or approve any pre-workshop application it receives. Based on the disclosures provided by the school in this Pre-Workshop Application, ACCSC reserves the right to determine a school ineligible for ACCSC-accreditation.
