The Commission on Accrediting maintains an institutionally based database on member schools that functions for both in-house administrative use as well as data collection, analysis, and reporting.
Annual data are collected each fall from member institutions via Annual Report Forms. Annual Report Forms information is collected electronically via a custom developed website. The data is then electronically submitted to ATS. These data are collected for accreditation and membership purposes and serve as the basis for information published in the Association's reports and publications.
