Welcome to the CoA Portal
The APA Commission on Accreditation (APA CoA) is recognized by both the secretary of the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as the national accrediting authority for professional education and training in psychology. APA CoA accredits doctoral graduate programs in clinical, counseling, and school psychology and programs offering combinations of two or more of these areas; internship programs in professional psychology; and postdoctoral residency programs that provide education and training in preparation for professional practice. The CoA Portal is the online information system that programs, site visitors, and APA CoA members use throughout the accreditation process. Users are granted access to different information based on their role and stage of the accreditation process.
Please email the APA Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation for assistance accessing the site.
