NCASES Application For Accreditation


Multi Program Accreditation

If you have more than one program seeking accreditation at a different location from your main campus, you must fill out a separate application for each separate program. NCASES considers separate programs as those at additional sites/locations.

The main program would cost $2,500/$4,000 depending on if it is a day or residential program, plus an additional $1,000 per each site not located on the main campus. When you fill out the application for any additional programs not located on the main campus, please check this selection (This is an additional site application – additional $1,000 per site).

If all of your programs are on one campus, you only need to fill out one application. Please make sure to list each program on the same campus that you would like to be accredited with the correct information for each program (First Program, Second Program, Third Program sections).

COA/NCASES Integrated accreditation

Our partnership with Council on Accreditation allows for COA & NCASES Site Teams to be onsite at the same time, simplifying the process for the achievement of dual accreditation. COA offers a 15% discount on their accreditation fee when you apply for an integrated accreditation.
