Call for Comments on Proposed Revisions to COA Standards and Policies

The COA is seeking feedback from its communities of interest regarding proposed revisions to its Standards and policies. These revisions, which were proposed by the COA’s Standards and Policies Committee, have been made as part of the COA’s Petition for Continued Recognition by the U.S. Department of Education. An additional revision has been proposed to the COA’s “Clinical Site Application” to enhance the efficiency of office operations.

The COA is now releasing the mark-ups (click here to view) of the revised policies for comment. A Call for Comments survey on the proposed revisions is open and available by clicking on the following:

Please review the policies and submit your comments via this survey. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be completed in multiple sittings using the “Save” button. After clicking “Save,” a page will appear with a new link to access your saved survey. Please note that comments are required for “Strongly Agree,” “Disagree,” and “Strongly Disagree” responses.

Feedback from the community of interest is very important in considering the proposed revisions. Program Administrators are encouraged to forward this notice to their faculty and students.

The Call for Comments will remain open until January 6, 2023. Should you have any questions regarding the Call for Comments, or if you would like to submit feedback directly, please contact the COA at or (224) 275-9130.
