School-Applied Child Psychology Program
Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology

Canada
May 22, 1998
Accredited, on probation

At its meeting on April 6, 2014, the APA Commission on Accreditation voted to grant the school PhD program at McGill University “accredited, on probation" status. This decision is based on the CoA’s professional judgment that the accredited program is not consistent with the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation (G&P) and may have its accreditation revoked. Prior to this designation, the program was provided an opportunity to show cause why it should not be placed on probation by providing a written response to the issues of concern. A program not coming into compliance within two (2) CoA meetings after the show cause notice is assigned “accredited, on probation” status. Although it is an accredited status, “accredited, on probation” is considered by the CoA to be an adverse action that serves as notice to the program, its students/interns/residents and the public that in the professional judgment of the CoA the accredited program is not consistent with the G&P. The program will need to respond to the CoA’s concerns within four (4) meetings. The next review of the program is scheduled for July 2015.
