All accredited and candidate programs are required to submit an Annual Accreditation Report. This report is used to collect comprehensive data on each program. The data collected is used for program reviews and to create the annual aggregate data and salary reports. The AAR is also used by researchers and other interested parties.

The 2020 Annual Accreditation Reports (AAR) are available for data entry on the CAPTE portal.

It is imperative that you use the AAR questions (below) to gather your data before entering the data on the Portal. These documents include instructions that are not available on the Portal.

Expanded AARs are no longer required. All accredited programs will now complete a standard AAR, previously known as the Abbreviated AAR.
