Applying for Initial Accreditation

To apply, the sponsoring institution notifies CAAHEP of its request for accreditation services by completing the electronic Request For Accreditation Services form (RAS). Once submitted, the ARC/STSA will contact you to set up a conference call to discuss tentative dates for the On-Site Evaluation (site visit), and submission of the Self-Study and applicable fees.

Students are definitely at an advantage when they complete a program that is nationally accredited, so we pursued accreditation without hesitation. ARC/STSA was very supportive throughout. We are proud to be a part of ARC/STSA’s and CAAHEP’S accredited programs and feel that the accreditation will enhance the strength of our program for years to come.”
