The American Board of Funeral Service Education (ABFSE)
The ABFSE serves as the national academic accreditation agency for college and university programs in Funeral Service and Mortuary Science Education.
Although its roots go back to the 1940s, the ABFSE became an autonomous agency in 1962. The US Department of Education and the Council on Higher
Education Accreditation recognize ABFSE as the sole accrediting agency for academic programs that prepare funeral service professionals.
