COA Standards for Accreditation
Through the NCASES partnership with the Council on Accreditation (COA) an integrated accreditation process is offered for those programs that are currently or want to be COA accredited. A program has the choice to either have the teams (NCASES & COA) visit their program together or they can come on separate visits. The process allows, through the combination of NCASES and COA standards, to have the program be accredited by both programs once the standards are complete. If this is of interest to you, you will need to check this option on the NCASES Application Form when applying for NCASES Accreditation.
