Following submission of the institution's self-study report, which may not be earlier than one year or later than three years after the acceptance of the institution's Application for Consideration for candidacy, an onsite evaluation visit is conducted. The self-study report is to be submitted at least four to six weeks prior to the visit. An electronic copy and printed copies of the self-study are to be mailed to the Commission office and to members of the evaluation committee. The size of the evaluation committee will be determined by the size and complexity of the institution. The charge for a candidate evaluation visit is $1,500 per evaluator, but the Commission reserves the right to adjust the evaluation fee to fit unusual circumstances associated with the visit.
As a Candidate for Accreditation, the College of Western Idaho is required to: (1) file annual reports with the commission; (2) submit a Year One Self-Evaluation Report in Fall 2012; and (3) submit a Year Three Self Evaluation Report and a year Seven Evaluation Report, including hosting a committee of Commission representatives in Fall 2014 and again in Fall 2016, respectively. CWI will post the required reports on this sight as they are submitted.
