Choosing a Program

What does it mean when a program is not accredited?

Accreditation is a voluntary process, as programs choose whether and when to apply for initial accreditation. The Commission on Accreditation (CoA) has no basis for evaluating programs that have not applied. View the current list of applicant programs for initial accreditation.

When accreditation is denied or revoked, that means that the program has been deemed inconsistent with the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation of Programs in Professional Psychology (G&P).  When the CoA denies or revokes accreditation, those programs are publicly listed as such on the CoA Web site.
