Get Accredited

澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 Accreditation Evaluation Is an 18-Month, Five-Step Process.

澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 accreditation is the culmination of a practice of ongoing self-assessment and continuous improvement, which assures confidence that 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖-accredited programs are meeting the needs of their students, preparing graduates to enter their careers, and responsive to the needs of the professions and the world. This process has to be initiated by the institution.

For a visual timeline of the accreditation process, see Accreditation Step-by-Step.

Beforehand 鈥 Assessment and Eligibility

Before seeking 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 accreditation, your program should determine if it falls into the categories that we accredit, and that it meets our聽Eligibility Requirements. Prior to seeking an accreditation review, each program must have a functioning聽assessment process聽in place that meets our聽criteria聽for accreditation in three areas: Program Educational Objectives, Student Outcomes, and Continuous Improvement.

The Accreditation Process

  1. Readiness Review

    Programs seeking initial accreditation by a commission for which the institution currently has no 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖-accredited programs must undergo a聽Readiness Review. One preliminary Self-Study Report per program should be sent to聽readinessreview@abet.org聽by October 1. The Readiness Review鈥攐ne of our eligibility requirements鈥攚ill help determine whether or not your program is ready to submit a formal Request for Evaluation (RFE).

  2. Request for Evaluation

    Programs that have:

    1. met all eligibility requirements for 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 accreditation,
    2. implemented assessment processes, and
    3. if required, completed the readiness review聽may begin the accreditation process by filing a聽Request for Evaluation (RFE)聽by January 31 of the year in which the program is seeking an on-site visit.

    Every RFE must be accompanied by one official transcript from a recent program graduate.

    For programs located outside of the U.S., the RFE must also be accompanied by the聽Request for Acknowledgement (RFA)聽form and all required certified/official translations.

  3. Self-Study Report

    Once your program has submitted a Request for Evaluation, it must submit a聽Self-Study Report聽to 澳门一肖一码一必中一肖 Headquarters by July 1. The chair of your program鈥檚 accreditation review team will then instruct you on distributing copies of the Self-Study Report to each member of the review team.

  4. The On-Site Visit

    On-Site visits聽are typically scheduled between September and December in the same year of an RFE submission. For programs located in the U.S., the on-site visit usually takes place between September and December, generally Sunday through Tuesday. Programs outside the U.S. may have a different schedule.

    Once the on-site visit is set, you will be asked to schedule interviews and provide meeting spaces and display materials to assist the review team in its evaluation. The on-site visit will conclude with an exit meeting, at which the review team will convey its findings.

  5. Due Process and the Accreditation Decision

    Approximately two to three months after the on-site visit, we will send your institution a Draft Statement containing a section for each program reviewed. The institution has a聽30-Day Due Process聽response period from receipt of the Draft Statement to provide information on actions the programs have taken to resolve any identified shortcomings.

    The back-and-forth process of the due process review period must be completed before the commission鈥檚 decision-making meeting in July, when each team chair presents his/her team鈥檚 findings to the commission responsible for the accreditation decision.

    A Final Statement is prepared and sent to the institution by August 31. The Final Statement is based on the review team鈥檚 findings, the program鈥檚 responses, and communicates the聽accreditation commission鈥檚 decision.
