1.1.2. Conditionally Accreditation Status Language

Statement for Conditionally Accredited Programs to Post on their Web Sites:

[Program] is conditionally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation.

Conditional Accreditation of a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation indicates that it has not demonstrated compliance with one or more of CSWE’s Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards.  Programs in Conditional Accredited Status must demonstrate compliance with all standards within one year of being placed on Conditional Accredited Status.  If a program is unable to demonstrate compliance within one year, the COA will move to withdraw accredited status.  Students who graduate from programs with Conditional Accredited Status will still be recognized as having graduated from a CSWE-accredited program. 

Conditional Accreditation Status by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation applies to all program sites and program delivery methods of an accredited program.
