The program submits a Letter of Institutional Intent, the Candidacy Eligibility Fee, and a Candidacy Eligibility Application form with supporting materials. The director of the Office of Social Work Accreditation (OSWA) assigns an accreditation specialist to review the submission. When the specialist approves the Letter of Institutional Intent and Candidacy Eligibility Application, the program is asked to submit a Benchmark I document. The accreditation specialist reviews the Benchmark I document and works with the program to make certain it has fully addressed all of the requirements of the Benchmark I. After approving the Benchmark I document, the specialist recommends that the director of OSWA arrange Commissioner Visit I. The date of Benchmark I approval determines the program’s agenda date (February, June, October).
