Program Accreditation


The Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Education Committee on Accreditation (CoA RATE), in conjunction with the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), has launched an accreditation program through which academic administrators can demonstrate the quality of their educational program by satisfying the criteria for accreditation. The standards for accreditation and an outline of the steps in the accreditation application process can be found on CAAHEP's CoA RATE webpage.

CoA RATE completed its first review of accreditation applications in June 2017. To be eligible for upcoming reviews, interested programs must: 

  1. Submit the "Request for Accreditation Services" form
  2. Then submit their completed self-study

All future requests for accreditation services must be submitted by the 1st Wednesday and self-studies by the 3rd Wednesday of the current month to be reviewed during that month. All forms submitted after will be reviewed the subsequent month.
