CAPTE meets twice a year (spring and fall) to review physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education programs. CAPTE also makes Candidacy decisions in July and may make decisions at other times as needed. A list of CAPTE's most recent actions can be accessed here. Additionally, the reasons for Candidate for Accreditation, Initial Accreditation and Reaffirmation of Accreditation are listed immediately following the recent actions (starting with April 2015).
Pursuant to requirements for recognition by the US Department of Education, CAPTE makes available on this Web page brief statements about the reasons for decisions to place or maintain programs on probation and for final decisions to deny candidacy, withdraw candidacy, withhold accreditation, or withdraw accreditation.
