Accreditation Process Overview
Overview of Accreditation Process
The flowchart below is provides an overview of the accreditation process. It does not contain all information necessary for a program to successfully complete the process. Please refer to the standards for additional information and details.
Overview is based on the APA Accreditation Standards, Version 2.04, and is accurate as of May 1, 2018.
The standards have since been updated to 2.05. Until an updated flowchart is created, this will remain for general information purposes only.
The APA is a member of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA), and the APA / EAC adheres to its Code of Good Practice. For information about ASPA and programmatic accreditation, visit ASPA on the web.
