Complaint Procedures

Complaints relating to accredited or applicant schools and programs may be addressed to CEPH’s Executive Director at the address provided at the bottom of this page. Complaints must be prepared according to CEPH’s Accreditation Procedures.

A complaint against a CEPH-accredited unit may be submitted to the CEPH executive director at any time via mail or email on the Complaint Form.

Complaints must meet all of the following minimum requirements:

  1. submitted in writing
  2. specifically indicates which accreditation criterion or policy is allegedly being violated
  3. includes documentation that the complainant has already exhausted the accredited unit’s administrative complaint or grievance processes
  4. is signed
  5. includes the complainant’s contact information

CEPH also requires a release authorizing CEPH to forward a copy of the complaint, including identification of the complainant, to the accredited unit for a response. In rare circumstances, where credible violations of CEPH standards or policies are alleged, CEPH may, in its sole discretion, investigate complaints that are not submitted on the CEPH Complaint Form or without a release.
