Standards 2025

AAQEP's standards and their associated evidence requirements and priorities are on a 7-year review cycle. The current standards were adopted in January 2018, which means they must be renewed in or before January 2025. In accordance with the AAQEP bylaws, the standards-review process is overseen by the Quality Expectations Committee, whose members are drawn from the Board of Directors and the Accreditation Commission.
