A substantive change is one that may significantly affect an institution's quality, mission, scope, operations including primary methods of delivering programs, or control. Substantive changes are reviewed to ensure that changes in educational offerings, teaching modalities, locations, scope of offerings, and control of the institution are or will be made in compliance with DEAC accreditation standards. A substantive change must be approved by the Commission, as applicable, before the change can be included in the institution's scope of accreditation.

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 unless otherwise indicated.
