Council on Accreditation (COA) Integrated Accreditation Option

NCASES is pleased to offer an integrated accreditation process in collaboration with the Council on Accreditation (COA). When pursuing this accreditation option, applicant agencies may choose to have NCASES and COA Site Review Teams visit their program on the same dates, or separate visits can be scheduled. Through the combination of NCASES and COA Standards, the process allows for applicant agencies to achieve accreditation through both COA and NCASES while avoiding redundancies. (Agencies pursuing an integrated site review will receive a 15% discount on COA accreditation fees. Please note agencies that are members 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.)
