The Roadmap: Phase II Questions

Questions to review and revise the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation are open for comment.

At the fall 2012 meeting, the Commission on Accreditation (CoA) reviewed more than 400 pages of comments received from the public on the first phase of questions for the review and revision of the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation (G&P) (PDF, 151KB). Each of the CoA’s policy groups (doctoral, internship and postdoctoral) analyzed the comments and drafted follow-up questions that are now available for public comment. During the first quarter of 2013, CoA members have met with a number of its communities of interest at scheduled meetings during this second phase of review. 

The public comment period on the Phase II Questions is scheduled to continue through June 1, 2013.


CoA offers an online comment system for its publics to view proposals, access past comments (as appropriate) and to publicize individual and/or group opinions on accreditation policy proposals and issues. This system is the only means by which comments will be considered a part of the official record and reviewed by the commission. Comments may be submitted as an individual or as part of a group. Please contact the OPCA at (202) 336-5979 with any questions or issues regarding the public comment system.
