Self Study Report

Preparation and submission of the Self Study Report (SSR) is a requirement for an education program during the accreditation review. It is due four months prior to the onsite visit. Most education programs report that they require approximately a year to compile and format the information required for submission.

The main purpose of the SSR is to provide an opportunity for the education program to:
  • provide evidence about the program's compliance with accreditation standards
  • systematically review the program and assess its outcomes
  • identify areas of strength
  • identify areas where strategies may need to be developed to improve or maintain program quality

Guidelines and the required format for preparation of the SSR are provided in the Program Accreditation Handbook (see Downloads). Please contact with any additional questions.

Submission of the SSR must also include required forms provided in the zip file titled "Self Study Report Required Forms" in the Downloads.


Amanda Walton, Program Manager of the OTA & PTA Education Accreditation Program, has created a short video (3 ½ minutes) providing a helpful overview of the new requirements, also in the Downloads.
