As part of the complete application for an initial grant of accreditation with ACICS, an institution must complete an Annual Institutional Report (AIR). The AIR includes important data such as the overall enrollment at the institution, retention of students, and placement of completers and graduates. Currently, accredited institutions have a mandatory reporting period that begins on July 1 and concludes on June 30 of each year. However, an initial applicant may be allowed to submit an AIR based on a 12-month period immediately prior to the submission of the application.

All data used by the initial applicant to complete the AIR must be verified with back-up documentation. ACICS has developed an Excel spreadsheet which is used by accredited institution to provide for accurate data collection.
