CAA Lifts Candidacy Moratorium

Effective November 12, 2007, the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) lifted its temporary moratorium on the receipt of and action on any new applications for candidacy status.

The CAA voted to establish the moratorium, in effect since March 2007 , to develop candidacy procedures, application materials, and accompanying resources to support the implementation of the 2008 Standards for Accreditation [PDF] and its new candidacy (pre-accreditation) model for developing programs, including consortia.

CAA will now accept Applications for Candidacy from eligible graduate education programs that are submitted using the new application form. Applications must address the 2008 Standards for Accreditation and may be submitted for consideration by the CAA prior to January 1, 2008.

Please refer any questions about the Candidacy Program or candidacy application materials to the Academic Accreditation unit at
