a program wishes to either close or withdraw its accredited status, the school
director sends a formal letter to the AC notifying the AC of its intention to
close the program or withdraw its accredited status. The program is expected to
make arrangements for the graduation or transfer of its students and should
work closely with the AC during this planning process, at the conclusion of
which the date of the program's formal withdrawal of accreditation will be
decided. A program is expected to remain in full compliance with all standards
during the closure or withdrawal process.
