International Candidacy Eligibility Application

International Programs (outside the United States and its territories)

Please complete the international Candidacy Eligibility Application, which can be accessed via the link above. Please note that the Candidacy process for international programs is somewhat different, including the timing of required fees. Please see the supplement to the ACEN Accreditation Manual (click here) for more details.

The Candidacy Eligibility Application is used to initiate the program’s records with the ACEN, and the information is important to determining whether a program is eligible to pursue Candidacy with the ACEN. An incomplete application may not be processed until all components have been correctly provided, so please read the instructions carefully before completing your application.

Once you have completed your application, save it to your computer. Then, use the “Candidacy Eligibility Application” button to begin submitting the required materials to the ACEN.

Please read the information below carefully to ensure your submission is received.

All documentation must be submitted in PDF format only. PDFs created from scanned documents are only acceptable for supporting documentation (e.g., correspondence with a state regulatory agency), while the completed Candidacy Eligibility Application must be as a searchable PDF format (i.e., a Word document saved as a PDF). For help creating a searchable PDF, click here.

Click “Candidacy Eligibility Application” and a form will open on the current page. Please complete all fields and attach the required supporting documentation files.
