Important Reminders for Applicants
- Use the most recent edition of the NADE Guides.
- Use the most recent NADE Application Packet for your program, located below.
- Follow the order of the Application Checklist when submitting your application materials.
- Please note that all applications must be accompanied by the $2,500 application fee.
- Those who have completed the Accreditation Institute and who wish to apply for accreditation must submit by July 1 of the fifth year following the most recent Institute attended.
- A NADE application for accreditation requires significant time, effort and resources to do well. Therefore, the NADE Accreditation Commission highly recommends that the lead person(s) for a component’s application process have (a) adequate release time or time dedicated to the application; (b) clerical assistance; and (c) significant access to institutional research and/or experts for data collection and analysis. In general, this process requires two to three years to complete.
Programs not submitting a completed application within two years of attending an Accreditation Institute are strongly encouraged to attend another Institute.
