Council Of Accreditation

Through NCASES collaboration 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 Site Review Teams (NCASES and 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 accredited by both programs once the Standards are complete. (Agencies pursuing an integrated survey will receive a 15% discount on COA accreditation fees. Please note agencies that are members of one of COA's ten Sponsoring Organizations, and as a result receive a 25% discount on their (re)accreditation fee, will not qualify for an additional 15% discount.)
