Please note that CCNE shares third-party comments only with members of the evaluation team. The evaluation team only considers third-party comments that relate to the program’s compliance with the reaccreditation standards. At no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. However, all compliance concerns related to the reaccreditation standards will be identified in the accreditation report, and the program will have an opportunity to respond to those concerns as part of its response to that report.
