2020 Fall COAMFTE Meeting

The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) meets biannually to review programs in marriage and family therapy at a masters, doctoral and post-doctoral degree level for compliance with the current COAMFTE Accreditation Standards.

As stated in the COAMFTE Accreditation Manual: Policies and Procedures :

The Commission will award initial accreditation or renewal of accreditation to programs evidencing substantial compliance with accreditation standards. Initial accreditation shall be granted for a period not to exceed six (6) years. Renewal of accreditation shall be granted for a period not to exceed seven (7) years (Shorter periods of accreditation may be awarded at the discretion of the Commission).

A program with deficiencies may be awarded accreditation with stipulations provided they can be corrected within a specified period of time. COAMFTE will specify "stipulations" that must be addressed in an interim report, due at a time determined by COAMFTE, or by an interim site visit to be conducted at a time determined by COAMFTE (p. 20).
