Annual Report

In order to maintain accredited status, all accredited programs and institutions are required to submit an Annual Report to CEA. The 2024 Annual Report is due February 15, 2024.

Annual Report Portal - carp.cea-accredit.org (for accredited sites to input their annual report data)

Please note that annual reports are different from the one-year reports. Annual reports are the same for every program, and every program (with a few exceptions) is required to file its annual report every year by February 15. One-year reports are produced by programs/institutions to address reporting requirements issued at the time of initial 1-year accreditation or 1-year reaccreditation. One-year reports have reporting requirements that are different for each site and have their own due dates (Typically Feb 1, Jun 1, or Sep 1).
