Public comment

The CoA announces public comment on Section 8 of the Accreditation Operating Procedures.

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. The CoA Public Comment System is the only means by which comments will be considered a part of the official record and reviewed by the commission. 

Please visit the CoA Public Comment System to download policy proposals, view comments received or register to post comments. Please contact the OPCA at (202) 336-5979 with any questions or issues regarding the public comment system.

Following acceptance of changes to the public disclosure of accreditation decisions, CoA approved complementary revisions to Section 8 (Confidentiality and Public Disclosure of Information) of the Accreditation Operating Procedures (AOP) for 30 days of public comment. The final revision of the confidentiality procedures will be forwarded for review by the APA Board of Educational Affairs and approval by the APA Board of Directors consistent with CoA’s processes. The 30-day public comment period public comment period began on Aug. 26, 2013 and continues through Sept. 27, 2013.
