Self Study Template-
Doctoral CLS 2018 Standards


NAACLS Programs undergoing the Doctoral Accreditation processes are encouraged to complete their Self-Studies using a PDF template that can be filled in and saved locally. You can complete the self-study using the most up-to-date free version of Adobe Reader.  Remember that you must save the file to your computer or flash drive before completing, and you are encouraged to save copies frequently to prevent any loss of data.

*IMPORTANTIf you use Adobe Acrobat (paid software) at ANY time to create/edit your self-study, you must continue to use Adobe Acrobat to edit it, as the editing features that are extended to Adobe Reader will be discontinued upon saving your document.
We recommend using Windows based computers as some users have reported issues with Macs.


To use the Self-Study Template:

  1.  Download the Self-Study, and save the file to your computer or flash drive before editing (do not work on it online). 
  2.  Follow the instructions on the PDF on how to complete the Self-Study.
  3.  Once finished, send two copies to NAACLS via flash drive (one self-study per flash drive). Remember you will also need copies to send to your site visitors, once appointed.
