PROFESSIONAL FAQS - General Questions
Yes, all accredited programs pay the yearly accreditation fee. The annual accreditation fee schedule for each program type can be found on the CAATE website. The self-study/site visit fee covers the cost of reviewing the self-study and all related site visit costs, but not the cost of yearly accreditation. The annual accreditation fee is invoiced in the beginning of August and is due 60 days after the invoicing date.
Our accreditation certificate says we are accredited through 2019-20, when do we need to submit our self-study?
Under the CAATE system of accreditation, accreditation is a continuing process. Should a program not submit the self-study at the required time, the athletic training program will be placed on probation and ultimately, may have its accreditation removed involuntarily. All self-studies are due July 1st. If a program’s accreditation certificate says 2019-20, the self-study is due July 1 of 2019. The site visit must occur during a window of dates determined by the CAATE, in the fall of 2019 or spring of 2020. The program director and the site visitors (once they are assigned) mutually agree on the date of site visit. Self-studies are submitted within the eAccreditation system.
