VISIT EXPENSES 
Visit expenses for all team members (including staff) shall be paid by the institution. You will be billed a fixed fee for site visits based on the number of team members, the number of visit days, and an adjustment for geographical location. The geographical adjustment is made so that institutions in lower-cost areas of the country are not paying the same fee as those in higher-cost areas. This invoice must be paid within 15 days of receipt of the invoice.

 

FACT VISITS 
Actual Expenses will be charged to the institution if the Council determines that the institution is not in compliance with the Accreditation Criteria. The Council will incur the expense otherwise.
