2022-2023 Self-Study Report Form Now Open!

April 27, 2022

This year’s Self-Study Report form is now open in the NASPAA Data Center (NDC) for programs in the 2022-2023 Cohort. Submissions must be uploaded to the NDC by August 15, 2022. Please follow the 2019 Self-Study Instructions (SSI) here and the 2019 Standards

The 2019 Standards require these three program documents, at a minimum, to be uploaded with the Self-Study Report :

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan (Standard 3 and Standard 4)
  • A Logic Model (Standard 1)
  • A program Assessment Plan (Standard 5)

A complete Self-Study Report will include these documents specifically tied to your program's mission


Useful Resources

NASPAA staff are available to help as you develop your Self-Study Report. In our experience, the following resources are really useful in helping understand NASPAA accreditation requirements. 

  • Standard-by-Standard Guidance. Drill down on each Standard to better understand the requirements and see additional resources specific to each Standard.
  • Peer Examples: Check out examples from other programs that COPRA thinks are useful.
  • COPRA Policy Statements: Stay up-to-date on COPRA's expectations for accredited programs.
  • 2019 Self-Study Instructions in Word: This includes the 2019 Self-Study Instructions in a Word version that can be used to draft your Self-Study Report before uploading to the NDC
  • Glossary and Appendices to the 2019 Self-Study Instructions. Take a peak at Appendix A of the Self-Study Instructions. It includes the Rationale, Clarifying Examples, and Basis of Judgment for each Standard.
