CACREP 2024 Standards Adoption

The CACREP Board adopted the 2024 CACREP Standards at its February 2023 meeting. This new set of standards will go into effect July 1, 2024. All self-study reports (SSRs) submitted on or after this date must be based on the 2024 CACREP Standards.

The target date for the release of the 2024 CACREP Standards is July 1, 2023.

The CACREP Board also determined that applications for initial accreditation or reaffirmation under the 2024 Standards will be accepted beginning July 1, 2024. This timeframe allows: program faculty time to review and prepare for the requirements in the new standards, CACREP time to prepare resource documents, and reviewers time to implement the new standards. Programs submitting SSRs prior to and up until June 30, 2024, must continue to use the 2016 CACREP Standards.
