Provisional Programs

There are 117 schools accredited by ACEJMC; 114 are fully accredited and 3 (listed below) are on provisional status.

The listing of a program as provisional means deficiencies identified during the review process resulted in the Accrediting Council withholding full accreditation/reaccreditation. The unit has a two-year provisional period to correct the deficiencies, after which the program is reviewed again and either reaccredited or denied. There is no extension of the provisional period. The unit also may choose to withdraw, ending any ACEJMC affiliation.

Included with each provisional listing below are: unit information; the bachelor’s and/or professional master’s degree programs examined during the review; the standard(s) found in noncompliance that led to the provisional status, the year when placed on provisional status, and a link to the most recent site team report, which details what must be corrected for accreditation. [In some cases, not all programs within the unit were reviewed; in these instances, the areas reviewed are shown in brackets.]

In addition, the listing provides each accredited unit’s most recent site team review report (2013-14 and thereafter) and the accredited unit’s current student data information (retention and graduation data).
