Perhaps there should be a review option for such students that can denote that while they ended up finishing at a nonaccredited program, they still meet APA competencies? Already that sounds like a painful process to me, but I'm sure many students would prefer to submit their transcripts and hours to review than to lose career options after investing time and money in pursuit of the degree. Or perhaps an option that facilitates a transfer to a different program?
I see what you're saying, but the nature of site visits is that they only occur every 7 (?) years. So although it may have become unaccredited shortly before/after they graduated, it is likely that they were receiving sub-accreditation-worthy instruction for their entire tenure. It sucks, but I think that's the risk you run when you attend a professional school...
