Many of you are likely exploring educational delivery options in the wake of concerns for the coronavirus (COVID-19). Please be assured that the ABHE Commission on Accreditation (COA) supports your efforts and will not take negative action against any institution that pursues a reasonable alternative to maintain the highest possible quality of education for their students during this emergency, even if that action temporarily exceeds normal policy provisions. While we cannot assure you that all states, provinces, or other regulatory entities will take a similar stance, please know that the COA will support you in these emergency actions.
