The program is currently preparing for its next CCNE accreditation site visit, which will be conducted virtually from October 4-6, 2021. In accordance with CCNE’s procedures, the Commission provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation.

Written third-party comments must be received by CCNE no later than September 13, 2021 (21 days prior to the first day of the scheduled site evaluation). Only signed comments are accepted by CCNE.
