Candidate Membership Information

Institutions who have submitted programs to TEAC for accreditation are candidate members of the Council. TEAC candidate members in good standing have a single vote, which may be cast at official meetings.

The members may take action on any matter related to TEAC’s operation, but by action as a group, they may not determine the accreditation status of any member or modify any aspect of the accreditation process itself, including the fees associated with membership and the membership process.

Members may vote on proposals to recommend modification in TEAC policies concerning revisions to TEAC’s accreditation standards, fees, and processes.

Members are entitled to suggest names of potential TEAC Board members to the Nominating Committee appointed by the Board of Directors. Candidate members pay annual dues set by the Board of Directors.
