Accreditation Fees


At its March 2016 meeting the commission approved several new accreditation processes and a  new fee schedule in support of the work and resources  required by the commission to fulfill its mission and philosophy.  The last time fees were increased was in 2012.  The new fee schedule is available on the fee page of this web site.

Accreditation Fees for Provisional Accreditation

The fee structure approved by the commission at its March 2016 meeting is available here.

After provisional accreditation is awarded, the program will be billed an annual accreditation fee according to the fee schedule.

Programs that cancel their site visit evaluation within sixty days of their scheduled site visit evaluation will be responsible for any expenses associated with the visit that have been incurred by the ARC-PA.

Appeals Fees

Fees for reconsideration of an accreditation action, fees for an appeal of an accreditation action and other expenses related to appeals are detailed in the ARC-PA appeals policy.

Late Fees

A 10% late fee will be charged to programs who are 45 days delinquent in their submission of their annual accreditation payment.
