Payment Options

You have multiple options for submitting payments. Payment for reports and documentation is due within 45 days of paperwork submission. Paperwork will not be reviewed until payment is complete; delays may negatively affect your program’s accreditation. Failure to make payments in a timely manner will incur a citation fee.

Click on the appropriate fee above. Check out through our secure online store. If you know your login information, log in to auto-fill your program’s information. If you do not know your login, you can still proceed. Please ensure identifying information for the program is included to properly credit your account. Print a copy of the receipt for the program’s records and send one with the paperwork as payment confirmation.


2. Mail a Check/Money Order Payment

The program can mail payment with the paperwork or mail it separately in an envelope. If the check is mailed separately, please ensure identifying information for the program is on or with the check to ensure payments are accurately assigned to program accounts.

Beginning 6/1/2020, the National Accreditation Commission will resume conducting validation visits. The Accreditation Office will work with individual programs to determine the impact of local restrictions on a potential visit. The safety of program families and staff and National Accreditation Commission validators is of the utmost importance and at the heart of all decisions made during the ongoing public health crisis. Please direct any questions and concerns to Erin Schmidt, Director of Accreditation, at [email protected]. Please monitor this website for further developments and updates. From the Accreditation Team to your team, stay safe and be well.
