As part of its accreditation process, DEAC requires its accredited institutions to submit the appropriate application, form or report in accordance with the requirements set forth in the DEAC Accreditation Handbook. Institutions are responsible for monitoring when the appropriate application or form is due to DEAC and are responsible for submitting complete information in a timely and accurate manner. Applicable fees are required at the time of submission.
Please note: Schools submitting materials should, when available, use the newest versions of the applications, forms, and reports. Previous versions of the documents will be marked with "(Legacy Version)" and should not be used.
