Commission on Accreditation
Public Comment Solicitation Program


This website is for the viewing and submitting of public comments on proposed accreditation-related policies of the American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation (APA-CoA).

If you would like to submit public comment, you must register for EACH project on which the APA-CoA seeks comment. Even if you have registered to submit comment in the past, you need to register again. However, you will be able to view the proposals and others' comments without registering. Registration requires the participant to use an email address, and to develop a password. Note that because this site is not secure, participants should not use confidential information or codes (e.g, credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.) in the registration process. Comments and other identifying information, including the users’ identity, will be public. However, email addresses will be kept confidential. Also note that email addresses used for participant registration can only be used once. This means that if a participant is submitting comments for a group and also wishes to submit comments as an individual, a different email account must be provided at registration. Viewing of proposed policy documents requires Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download).

All comments are public and may be viewed by any other participant that submits comments. APA has the right to use any comments posted on this site and reproduce any comment, including any identifying information, in print, on the web or any other type of media that APA deems necessary in order to conduct its business.
