Provisional Membership

A school that meets all the ACAMIS Membership criteria above except for final accreditation as stated in item 2 of the Membership Standards, but which is in the process of such independent external evaluation, may be admitted into Provisional Membership status after submitting its application, completion of the site visit and submission of an official letter from a recognized accreditation agency or other ACAMIS approved external evaluation agency acknowledging readiness to enter the school evaluation process. Provisional Membership will only be granted based on the presentation of a scheduled plan for the realisation of such external evaluation in meeting the ACAMIS criteria.

Conditions of Provisional Status

  • Provisional Membership status will normally be granted for no longer than two years along with the requirement that the school adhere to its schedule for meeting full membership criteria. Any variation to this schedule must be communicated to the ACAMIS Executive Director with specific reasons given for the change.
  • The ACAMIS Board reserves the right to rescind Provisional status at any time should there be sufficient reason to doubt that a school is able to meet its commitment.
  • Schools with Provisional Membership status must pay the same annual fee as those with Full Membership status. Memberships activated after January 1 will be required to pay 1/2 annual membership fee for the remainder of that academic year.
  • Heads or other representatives of Provisional status schools may not vote or hold ACAMIS office on the ACAMIS Board of Directors or serve on any ACAMIS committees until they have achieved full comprehensive member status.
  • Provisional status schools may not use the ACAMIS logo in or on any of their school promotional materials or for commercial purposes.
