Accreditation Procedure

After having obtained full MENATE membership, a MENATE member school requests an Application for Candidacy for MENATE Accreditation. It is the institution’s responsibility to show that it conforms to MENATE’s criteria for candidacy. The completed application should be sent by e-mail to the MENATE Executive Director.

The application is reviewed by the Accreditation Commission and the Commission to determine if the applicant is likely to fulfill the conditions of accreditation within the four-year candidacy period. A candidacy visit may be requested or recommended. A majority vote by the Accrediting Commission will decide for or against candidacy and may place prerequisite conditions on Candidacy. For more details, review section 3.1 from the Accreditation Manual .
