N. System Sponsored Center to Institution Sponsored Center

A System Sponsored Center may convert to an Institution Sponsored center when System changes no longer support such a structure or the component institutions wish to be separately accredited.


1. The change from a system sponsored to an institution sponsored center quires an accreditation review and site visit.
2. The action resets the accreditation review cycle and a Five Year Review is required five years from granting Institution Sponsored accredited member status.
3. If two or more centers are requesting the Institution Sponsored accredited member status, each will need a review and site visit, preferably by the same National Site Team Chair.


1. Submit Accreditation Review Request Form (Appendix 3).
2. Submit required materials.
3. Follow Standard Accreditation Review.
