Process for Accredited Chapters

Description

At the 2017 Congress in Richmond, Virginia, a Motion was passed to establish an annual submission process for Chapters that have successfully been Accredited. This process was to cover a calendar year, thus covering one Alpha’s term. Any Chapter which was not Accredited in the Fall semester submission would have to submit a full submission in Spring semester. Colonies are still required to submit every semester.

The Accreditation process on this page is for use by Chapters which have been Accredited for the 2018 calendar year (in other words, your Fall 2017 submission passed).

If your Chapter was not Accredited through your Fall 2017 submission, click here. If you are unsure if you were Accredited, find our listing here.

If you are a Colony, you are required to submit Accreditation each semester and should click here.
Note: If you are a first-semester Colony (i.e., you were Founded this current semester) you are not required to submit anything for Accreditation.

Submission Process

The Fall 2018 Accreditation submission process has changed slightly to be more user friendly and include requirements from the entire calendar year. This process will still allow Chapters to work on Accreditation at their own pace while still receiving a detailed score sheet with grader feedback.

However, in order to ensure this process goes smoothly, please read through and follow the directions carefully. If you have any questions, please reach out to Michael Davis, Director of Undergraduate Services, at davis@chiphi.org. The National Office will be hosting two webinars for all Chapter Officers involved in Accreditation along with any Chapter Advisors who would like to attend. The days/time are upcoming.

If you (or someone from your Chapter) cannot attend one of these webinars, please reach out to your Leadership Consultant as soon as possible.

Deadline

The deadline for the Fall 2018 Accreditation submission is November 11, 2018, by 11:59 pm. Chapters are more than welcome (and encouraged) to submit documents early to their Leadership Consultant for review and feedback. Late submissions will be penalized.

Rubric

Chapters  are asked to refer to the yearly Accreditation Rubric for assistance with their supporting documentation and Accreditation submission. Please note: the Midyear Report and (also available for download on Chi Phi Connect) is now included in the Accreditation program and is not to be submitted separately through Vault as in past semesters. Chapters Accredited through their Fall 2018 submission will still be required to submit their End-Of-Year Report by May 1, 2019.
