Who pays for site visits?

Q: Do the colleges or the COE pay the expenses for a site visit?
 
A: The cost for evaluation and site visits for US and Canadian colleges are shared by those colleges and the AVMA, except for requests for reasonable assurance status from proposed new colleges; colleges with provisional accreditation status; and when a site visit is made at the request of a college for consulting on program development not directly related to an accreditation decision; in these cases the college pays all costs. Each US and Canadian college pays the AVMA $10,000 every seven years, the period coinciding with the normal site visit and accreditation cycle for that college. Colleges outside the US and Canada pay all expenses for a site visit.
