VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS

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.

According to the P & P, once the CAATE approves the programs Voluntary Withdrawal date, the program cannot admit students. So if the program has submitted their Voluntary Withdrawal documentation with teach out plan, the closing date should be after the last class graduates.

Yes. It is expected that programs will remain in compliance with ALL Standards during the withdrawal process. Programs that have non-compliances with the Standards will be required to complete Progress Reports on the noncompliant Standards until the withdrawal date.

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.

Yes, programs who are not transitioning to the master’s degree must complete Voluntary Withdrawal. Instructions to Voluntary Withdrawal are located on the CAATE Website.
