2017 - 2018 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys the end of the semester was busy. Been a while since I checked the forums. I wouldn't worry about the accreditation, that's a temporary issue that won't effect anyone.

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.

Congrats to everyone who received interviews and acceptances.
Maybe I don't understand correctly, but I'm worried about the probationary status of the program which was outlined in an earlier post. 
Can a current student or anyone share what's being done to correct the issues?

      Just wondering if anyone has received any confirmation emails from the program. I was CASPA verfied back in mid-May, and sent in my check and supplemental essay around the same time. However, the $40 was never deducted from my account. I'm wondering if they haven't begun to review any materials, or if I'm missing something! 
      I plan to call the program after the holiday weekend, but just thought I'd see if anyone has received a confirmation email at all.
