VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS
How long can a program be in the withdrawal phase without having to do a selfstudy if they are scheduled for one?
A program who has submitted their voluntary withdrawal documentation to the CAATE and has been notified that the withdrawal date and documentation is satisfactory will not have to do a selfstudy. However, programs going through Voluntary Withdrawal are expected to remain in compliance with the Standards and must continue to submit Annual Reports, submit any Progress Reports, and pay annual accreditation fees until the approved date of withdrawal.
Freshmen enroll in the Intro class in the fall and then they are admitted during the spring semester. They begin the professional phase of the program during the following fall. If a Voluntary Withdrawal letter is submitted in June (e. g. 2017), could this new cohort begin the professional phase of the program in the fall (2017)?
Is the date based on when they were actually admitted or when they actually begin the professional phase of the program? Students may not be admitted, enrolled, or matriculated into the program after the Voluntary Withdrawal documentation has been approved by the CAATE.
