UCNS Simplifies Accreditation Fee Structure
10-3-2018 Beginning September 2018, UCNS is implementing a simplified
accreditation fee structure. The Board of Directors voted to revise the
annual accreditation fee to absorb the costs associated with
All programs undergo a reaccreditation review every one to five years.
Previously, programs were required to submit a $1,000 reaccreditation
application fee with each reaccreditation application. This fee was due
in addition to an annual fee, which resulted in confusion among many
programs during years when both fees were required. In addition, due to
the varying duration of accreditation periods awarded, budgeting for
reaccreditation fees caused difficulty to some programs.
An annual administrative fee must be submitted by all programs to
maintain accreditation. Fees had not been reviewed or updated since
2013. The revised annual fee of $2,000 will be invoiced each May with a
July 1 due date.
