POSTPONEMENT, CANCELLATION, AND REFUND POLICY
On-site review of an applicant agency will be scheduled within 6 months of filing of the application. Once scheduled, an applicant may postpone the on-site review or withdraw from the accreditation process at any point prior to the start date of the on-site review.
Postmarked date of written postponement (Calendar Days prior to on-site)
- 60 or more days – $500
- 30-59 days – $1,000
- Less than 30 days – No Postponement (See Cancellation)
CANCELLATION (withdrawal from the accreditation process):
An applicant may withdraw from the accreditation process at any point. However, since a substantial amount of work precedes the on-site review steps, the following refund policy will be enforced.
|Process Stage||Refundable Amount|
|Before completion of off-site review||80% of application fee minus any reviewer expenses incurred|
|After completion of off-site review||20% of application fee minus any reviewer expenses incurred|
|After completion of the on-site review||10% of application fee minus any reviewer expenses incurred|
|After on-site review and prior to Panel review||No Refund|
* Once rescheduled, the on-site visit may not be postponed a second time. The agency’s option at this point will be withdrawal from the process. Refund policies for cancellation will apply.
