ACEJMC requires its accredited programs to provide retention and graduation data on their websites. Data are to be updated annually. The deadline to comply with this requirement is Sept. 3. Programs not meeting this requirement will be placed on probation. Information and instructions for meeting this requirement can be found at Public Accountability.

The requirement was approved at the fall 2012 Council meeting as part of ACEJMC's 10-year review and revision of its standards. Accredited programs and programs seeking initial accreditation were notified of the public accountability requirement and Sept. 3 deadline immediately after the meeting.

Accredited programs have been required for the past several years to track and analyze retention and graduation rates and to include the data in the self-study. The additional step to publish the data online and update it annually was prompted by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation's (CHEA) recognition standards.

ACEJMC is recognized by CHEA, which expects its accrediting agencies to have a policy requiring routine public disclosure of student performance.

At its May 3 meeting, the Council approved the following:
Units that do not meet this requirement will be placed on probation until the data are provided or until Aug. 15 of the following year, at which time the unit will be suspended.

A unit on probation will be listed as such on ACEJMC's website and in the quarterly newsletter. The program must pay its annual dues while on probation.

A suspended program will be listed as such on ACEJMC's website and in its newsletters. A suspended program will not pay dues. A suspended program will remain on the accreditation review cycle schedule, but a site visit will not be scheduled until the public accountability requirement is met.

A suspended program will be reinstated immediately when the data are published and dues are paid.

The following are data links provided thus far.
