4.1.3. Timetable for Candidacy

The Timetable for Candidacy provides a detailed chronological list of accreditation fees, materials, and activities, with the deadline, number and kind of copies needed, and who should receive them as the program progresses through obtaining candidacy, completing candidacy, and receiving initial accreditation. Be sure to use the timetables marked 2008 EPAS

There are three versions of the Timetable for Candidacy with dates that correspond to the February, June, and October COA meetings held each year. Once the program has been assigned an agenda, select the corresponding Timetable for Candidacy (February, June, October) on the Web site, then go to the last row of the first page and insert the year the program was reviewed for candidacy in the middle column next to ”Commission Review for Candidacy.” That is when the COA decided whether the program was in compliance with Benchmark I and whether it should be granted candidacy. From there, work up to the top of the page and fill in the year for each step in the candidacy process. Contact your accreditation specialist if you have any questions or need assistance.
