    The Council on Occupational Education (COE), originally founded in 1971 as a regional accrediting agency of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, is the successor to the Commission on Occupational Education Institutions (COEI). In 1995, the Council became a national accrediting agency. In 2006, the Council celebrated its 35th year of assuring quality and integrity in career and technical education . The Council's accreditation process is conducted on behalf of more than 360,000 students across the nation who pursue careers in a variety of technical fields.

    It's factually accurate, but considering this is the second thread you've started concerning the COE, I'm now wondering about your intentions and/or association with them or one of their accredited schools?

    Yes, it's one of the ED-recognized national accreditors. Their scope is limited to Associate degrees, which is why you don't hear about them very often here.

    One about the school and one about the COE. It's not that suspicious!

    I know nothing of the school or the COE. I know this website is the experts on accreditation.

    That being said they have a Military Credit Inventory Evaluation (CIE) service that looks interesting.

    If a school is COE accredited and aligns with your career goals (i.e. it is approved in your state for licensure as, say, a massage therapist or a funeral director) then it offers some decent utility. But there are a good number of schools that have a hard and fast RA or the highway rule when it comes to transfers.

    I was speaking with someone on another forum who just got the not-so-good news from Amberton that they aren't accepting their NYS BOR accredited undergrad for their grad program. Bummer. Fortunately plans B through H are willing to play ball.

    If military credit is your only goal then Empire State College has been in that business for a good while. In addition, anything that is ACE Recommended will play easily with the Big Three .

    COE has its little niche. But I don't see it really expanding outside of that niche. That's probably a good thing if you take ACICS's situation as an indicator of what can happen when you get too big for your accreditation britches.
