COVID-19 UPDATE

********************************

UPDATE ON REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR ACOTE REGARDING MOVING TO DISTANCE EDUCATION IN THE FALL:

The US Department of Education is expanding their broad approval for the use of distance education until December 31, 2020. ACOTE is upholding the Department’s recommendation and allowing programs to continue using distance education without going through the normal approval process. Programs do NOT need to submit changes to ACOTE if they are continuing with distance education in fall 2020.

ACOTE is requesting that programs report on how they modified their program, during the pandemic, on the 2021 annual report. To help organize this content a template is posted on the ACOTE website (go to:  For Programs, Forms, COVID19 Reporting Template). This template is NOT a required format; it is provided as a guide.

*****************************************************************************

Please continue to monitor the ACOTE website at www.acoteonline.org for previous and continuous updates.

If you have specific questions unique to your program please do not hesitate to reach out to the Accreditation Department via email: accred@aota.org or contact Barb Ostrove at bostrove@aota.org or Teresa Brininger at tbrininger@aota.org. Please stay well and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
