The Council on Education has granted letters of Reasonable Assurance to Midwestern University, Glendale, Ariz. and Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, Tenn.Reasonable Assurance is not a preaccreditation action by the Council and does not confer accreditation of any kind on a developing college. Reasonable Assurance may lead to Provisional accreditation if a developing college is established according to plans presented to the Council, and if these plans demonstrate intent and a realistic plan to comply with the Standards of Accreditation. Reasonable Assurance may be renewed annually by the Council for a maximum of three years based on progress documented in biannual reports. If a developing institution granted Reasonable Assurance fails to continue to demonstrate that its plan to develop its program will comply with the Standards, or if the program significantly changes its plan without notifying the Council, the Council may withdraw the classification of Reasonable Assurance. A college granted Reasonable Assurance must offer admission to and matriculate its first class of students within three years.Both Midwestern University and Lincoln Memorial University are recruiting students for an inaugural class in fall 2014.
