Process

PSM affiliation or reaffiliation applications are assessed by the Commission on Affiliation of PSM Programs staff. A group of two or more PSM experts make up each committee that performs the review. Once an application for PSM affiliation or reaffiliation is reviewed by the Commission on Affiliation of PSM Programs and external review committee there are four possible outcomes: 

  • Immediate approval 
  • Iteration is required and application is approved
  • Iteration is required and application is not approved 
  • Application is not approved 

All communication with program applicants is managed by the Commission on Affiliation of PSM Programs.

New PSM Program Application Fee:

The Commission on Affiliation of PSM Programs will work with the applicant to coordinate our Affiliation Review with your own campus approval processes so that program launch can be synchronized or phased as appropriate for your program. The application for a new PSM program to enter the process for Affiliation requires the payment of a one-time new application fee of $1000. This places the program into queue as a program in Pre-Candidate Status. Receipt of a new PSM Affiliation Application forms places the program into Candidate Status until the review is completed. Typically, the Commission on Affiliation of PSM Programs will work with the Candidate for up to one year to complete iterations and review of the application, and make one of the decisions described above.
