Expedite Review Instructions

ALL SELF STUDY DOCUMENTS must be submitted to the member portal by the date of the inspection. If you are unable to complete the self study documents by the date of the inspection then you may request to reschedule the site visit inspection FIVE days before the current inspection date. If the site visit inspection date is changed then you will need to submit ALL SELF STUDY DOCUMENTS to the member portal by the new site visit inspection date.

If ALL THE SELF STUDY DOCUMENTS are not submitted to the member portal by the date of the inspection, or documents are missing then the provider's application for accreditation maybe deferred or denied.

The GAACS Site Visit Inspection team will make a recommendation for approval, denial, or deferral of accreditation based on the site visit inspection.

GAACS Office will review the inspection report, recommendation, and all documents submitted through the Self Study process and make the final decision. GAACS Office will notify you in writing should you be granted, deferred, or denied accreditation.

Upon written notification of accreditation and receipt of an accreditation certificate then you may advertise as a GAACS Accredited School. Display your accreditation certificate in a conspicuous place.

Should your school be denied accreditation status then you may appeal the decision in writing within 30 days from the date of notification. Your letter must show how you met the requirements during the application process.
