Accredited on contingency is an APA-accredited status and designates that the program is consistent, substantively and procedurally, with APA's Standards of Accreditation with the exception of the provision of outcome data. The PsyD Program in School Psychology at PCOM began accepting students in 2016 and will graduate its first cohort in 2021. As such, we do not yet have the full complement of outcome data available. Students that graduate from a program with this accreditation status have completed an APA-accredited program.
