In accordance with policy and federal regulation, the Commission provides notification of decisions on non-compliance actions to the U.S. Secretary of Education, the appropriate state or other licensing or authorizing agency, and the appropriate accrediting agencies at the same time it notifies the institution, but no later than 30 days after it reaches the decision. The Commission provides notification of such decisions to the public through its website within 24 hours of informing the institution. Please ensure that the institution’s published references to its accreditation status align with Commission policy.
