Below is a current list of applicants for CEPH accreditation. The list is updated twice per year (usually in early-July and early-November) following the Council’s decision-making meetings; however, information about a school or program already on the list may be updated more frequently. If you do not see a school or program on this list, it is not currently an applicant for accreditation.

Please note: CEPH procedures allow for a school or program to withdraw from the accreditation process at any time and for any reason, so appearance on this list in NO WAY guarantees that the school or program will become accredited, it simply confirms that it is in the process at the present time. CEPH staff cannot provide information on the likelihood that any given school or program will be granted accreditation. If you have further questions, please see the Frequently Asked Questions for students.

Applicant schools and programs are presented in alphabetical order. To sort by another column, simply click the column heading.
