Once you have met the eligibility criteria and are compliant with the standards, you are ready to submit your application along with the required documents.
We recommend that you do not submit your application until you are ready and available for the onsite survey. Please be sure that your application is complete – all fields are required. The non-negotiable and non-refundable application fee must be included with your application. If your application is incomplete or missing documentation, the accreditation process may be delayed.
Please submit the following documents along with your completed application:
Non-negotiable and non-refundable application fee
Copy of all professional staff licenses and non-ABC certifications – it is
not necessary to submit copies of ABC certifications
Legal documentation of ownership (e.g. Articles of Incorporation)
Narrative of Section VII: Criminal History (if applicable)
If considered necessary, we may request additional information. Your information and application materials are solely used by ABC and its surveyors or as required by law.
You will receive an email confirmation once your application has been received and both an email and written confirmation once ABC verifies that your application is complete.
When you are ready, click here to apply.
If your application is incomplete, we will send a certified letter to the primary contact listed on your application requesting additional materials. We must receive all requested materials by the deadline indicated in the letter. If your application is still incomplete, your application will be denied and you will need to resubmit a new application and fees.
Incomplete applications will be processed after all required documents and fees are received. Any delay in completing your application could result in a delay in your accreditation.
