Review by the National Advisory Committee on


Institutional Quality and Integrity.

(a)(1) The Advisory Committee considers an accrediting


agency's application at a public meeting and invites the
designated Department official, the agency, and other interested
parties to make oral presentations at the meeting.

(2) The designated Department official arranges for a


transcript to be made of the Advisory Committee meeting.

(b) At the conclusion of the meeting, the Advisory


Committee recommends that the Secretary approve or deny
recognition of the accrediting agency or defer a decision on the
agency's application.

(c)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (c)(2) of this


section, the Advisory Committee recommends recognition of an
agency if the agency complies with each of the requirements of
this part.

(2) The Advisory Committee may recommend


recognition despite finding that the agency failed to comply with
each of the requirements of this part if the Advisory Committee
provides the Secretary with a detailed explanation as to why it
believes the agency's failure to comply with the particular
requirement(s) does not require denial or deferral.

(3) If the Advisory Committee recommends recognition,


the Advisory Committee also recommends the scope of
recognition for the agency and a recognition period.

(4) If the Advisory Committee recommends denial of


recognition, the Advisory Committee specifies the reasons for the
recommendation and the requirements of this part that the agency
failed to meet.

(5) If the Advisory Committee recommends deferral of


a decision on the agency's application, the Advisory Committee
specifies the reasons for the recommendation, the requirements
of this part that it believes the agency has not met, and a
recommended deferral period.

(d) After the meeting, the Advisory Committee forwards


its written recommendations concerning recognition to the
Secretary.
