Why Accreditation

Accreditation is a critical part of choosing a quality school. It’s your assurance that the institution upholds standards set forth by an independent accrediting agency that is recognized by the United States Department of Education. In order to receive accreditation, a school must meet specific requirements and be approved by an official review board that certifies its strict adherence to the accrediting body’s standards of academic and institutional criteria.

RCOE School of Career Education is accredited by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE).

The Accrediting Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE) is located at 7840 Roswell Road, Building 300, Suite 325, Atlanta, GA 30350, www.council.org.
