ACCP Center & Coordinator
Procedure, Resources, and Guidelines

What is an ACCP Center

An ACCP Center is an education institution that has partnered with the Explorer program to offer university courses. The ACCP Center may be a high school, university, or educational agency with classroom space. ACCP Centers offer something to their students that no other educational institutions can. Our ACCP Center partners set their institutions apart from all their competitors by offering their students the opportunity to earn part of their US/Canadian/UK undergraduate degree in their home country at a reduced cost.

ACCP Coordinator:

Each ACCP Center must assign a staff member at their institution as the ACCP Coordinator. The success of students engaged in the program and the establishment of a college-going culture rely significantly on the foundational role of the ACCP coordinator. This coordinator plays a crucial role in supporting the success of both the partner institution and its students within the program.

 

Role of an ACCP Coordinator:

  • Facilitating the ACCP at the respective institution using materials provided by IPERC. 

  • Ensuring compliance with all policies and guidelines set for the ACCP Centers.

  • Assisting instructors, including reminding them to submit syllabi annually to IPERC and input semester grades.

  • Guiding students through the registration process, managing changes in registrations, and reminding students of deadlines and other tasks upon request.

  • Addressing student inquiries regarding eligibility, tuition payments, and credit transfers.

  • Communicating institutional changes, such as updating and reviewing the course ledger for semester alterations in offerings and personnel, and handling other requests as needed.

Explorer-ACCP Quality Guarantee

The quality and integrity of the Explorer-ACCP program are of the utmost importance to IPERC and its Explorer-ACCP partner institutions. To ensure that Explorer-ACCP Centers maintain our academic standards, IPERC will take the following quality control measures:

  1. Syllabi developed for each course must be approved by the Explorer-ACCP Program to ensure it meets Explorer-ACCP course requirements.
     

  2.  Final examinations for each course are based on the learning objectives provided by Explorer-ACCP.
     

  3. Final exams will be recorded to ensure that academic integrity standards are maintained.
     

  4. The Explorer-ACCP Program will conduct random checks of student examination forms to ensure academic integrity. Additionally, examination forms will be kept for 2 years to maintain records of student performance.
     

  5. In the event of any academic dishonesty, the school in question will be required to retest its students.
     

  6.  The Explorer-ACCP Program will conduct site visits or lecture recording reviews at each Explorer-ACCP Partner Center at least once per semester. Explorer-ACCP staff will provide a detailed report of each site visit, explaining what was observed during the visit and providing feedback to the Explorer-ACCP Partner Center regarding suggestions for improvement. The Explorer-ACCP Program will maintain records of past site visits and future plans for site visits.
