NOTE: Submitting this Initial Contact Data form does not grant the submitting institution status of any kind with TRACS. According to TRACS Board Policy BP 238, corresponding institutions are not to misrepresent themselves in regard to affiliation with TRACS. This policy states in part:
“No statement is made regarding possible future accreditation status or qualification not yet conferred by the Accreditation Commission. For example, an institution will not state that it has applied for candidacy with TRACS or is being evaluated by TRACS, and it is anticipated that accreditation will be granted in the near future.”
Any misrepresentation regarding affiliation with TRACS made by a corresponding institution may result in a discontinuance of communications between TRACS and the institution and may prevent the institution from proceeding in the application process.
