  1. I was also concerned about this matter; however, even if the program were to lose accreditation (which I don't think will happen), it would not effect the incoming class that begins in September 2018. Here's the information provided by ARC-PA http://www.arc-pa.org/frequently-asked-questions/student-questions/ The program I am considering is on probation. If I enter that program, will I be graduating from an accredited program? Probation is an active accreditation status and those entering a program that is on probation are entering a program that is accredited. If the program remains on probation or is removed from probation by the time of your graduation, you would be graduating from an accredited program. In the past, the NCCPA allowed graduates to sit for the PANCE exam as long as the program from which they graduated was accredited at any point during the students’ enrollment. This policy changed in 2003 and in order to be eligible to take the PANCE, students must successfully complete a program that was accredited at the time the student matriculated. It is best to check with the NCCPA concerning exam eligibility criteria. So as long as the program is accredited at the time of matriculation (initial enrollment), you're eligible to take the PANCE and become certified. I also confirmed that with the NCCPA. Also, here's the commentary for why the program was placed on probation, as stated above, administrative reasons: http://www.arc-pa.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Accreditation-Actions-2015S-to-2017M-Prob-only.pdf
  2. I'll be interviewing Sept. 20th. I'll be visiting the city until the 23rd if anyone is interested in joining me feel free to send a message on here. Robert Fielding
