Institutional Continued Accreditation Application

Use the Accreditation Data System (ADS) to prepare for your site visit by updating the Institutional Review Questionnaire (IRQ) and attachments prior to the site visit. Please update the response to citations from the last accreditation review in ADS to ensure the documentation reflects the current status of improvements in these areas. Report any changes you want to communicate as relevant to the accreditation of your institution under the “Major Changes” section in ADS. To update the IRQ in ADS, click “Site Visits,” then click “View Institutional Review Questionnaire.”
