The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education (COE) accredits veterinary education programs to assure that minimum standards in veterinary education are met and that students enrolled in the program receive an education which will prepare them for entry-level positions in the profession. The WSU College of Veterinary Medicine underwent accreditation review in 2010 and full accreditation was accorded the DVM program until 2017.
