Flexibilities via emergency waiver extended until further notice [12 Nov 2020]

Because of the highly unusual circumstances and challenges presented to the postsecondary education community by COVID-19, the United States Department of Education (USDE or Department) has given accreditors certain regulatory flexibilities as a unique and temporary departure from the Department’s accrediting agency requirements.  


Current flexibilities adopted by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM or the Commission) were published on 18 May 2020.  (Revisions to Emergency Waiver 18 May 2020)

Effective immediately and during the period of COVID-19 interruption, ACAOM is extending its current flexibilities until further notice subject to any Federal, State and/or local limitations.
