Once placed on probation, a program that fails to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a probation site visit and/or risk having its accreditation withdrawn.
 
4 Accreditation-Administrative Probation is a temporary status granted when a program has not complied with an administrative requirement, such as failure to pay fees or submit required reports. Once placed on administrative probation, a program that fails to comply with administrative requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having its accreditation withdrawn.

Just wanted to update this thread.

 

The school sent out an email last week to current applicants stating that the accreditation status of the school has changed. The status is now "Accreditation-Continued". ☺
