Does someone oversee the activities of the COE?

Q: To whom does the AVMA COE answer?
A: The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) regulates educational accreditation, and the AVMA COE must adhere to its standards and follow proper reporting procedures.

AVMA COE is also recognized by a nongovernmental accreditors' recognition body called the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and must meet its requirements to remain recognized.

The AVMA COE also adheres to standards, including a Code of Good Practice, set by the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA), a professional association for accreditors.
