There are 3 types of closures.
1. Permanent Closure
If a Program closes permanently, it will no longer be considered participating in accreditation and its file will be closed by the Accrediting Agency. The accredited status of any permanently closed program will not be reinstated if the program receives a new license/contract and reopens.
2. Temporary Closure - Short Term (Up to 6 consecutive calendar months)
If a Program closes on a temporary basis some conditions apply to continue the accreditation process and/or maintain accreditation status.
*Failure to do so will result in loss of accredited status.
3. Temporary Closure - Long Term (Over 6 consecutive calendar months)
If a program closes for a period of over six consecutive calendar months, it will not be considered participating and its file will be closed by the Accrediting Agency. Programs that re-open after a long-term closure must submit a new online application to participate in accreditation.
