Self-Study Report Manual & Templates

This page includes documentation that must be submitted during an accreditation process. The Program’s draft SSR is due to PAB on June 15 (if a fall Site Visit has been scheduled) or September 15 (if a Site Visit the following spring has been scheduled). The final SSR in electronic version, together with an original signature page, is due to PAB 2 weeks after comments to the draft report have been received. An electronic version of the final SSR will be made available to the Site Visit Team at least 8 weeks before the Site Visit. A hard copy version of the final SSR must be available to the Site Visit Team during the Site Visit.

The following documents are under the 2017 Accreditation Standards. A revised SSR Manual and Template, aligned with the 2022 Accreditation Standards, will be available by January 2023.
