Student Achievement Criteria Data (SAC)
The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy
Education is recognized by the Council for Higher Education
Accreditation (CHEA). Consistent with CHEA Recognition Standards,
accreditation organizations must establish standards that require
accredited programs ‘to provide consistent information about academic
quality and student achievement and thus to foster continuing public
awareness, confidence, and investment’ (Recognition of Accrediting
Organizations: Policy and Procedures p.4). COAMFTE has established
Accreditation Standards that require programs to report on student
achievement. Additionally, COAMFTE collects Student Achievement data on
graduation rates, exam pass rates, and licensure rates. Accredited
programs are required to report Student Achievement Criteria data on an
annual basis. Click here to learn more about COAMFTE’s SAC Data.
Program Demographic Data
In accordance with COAMFTE policies and procedures, COAMFTE publishes and disseminates aggregate accredited program enrollment and faculty demographics.Click here to learn more about COAMFTE Program Demographic Data Data.
