Accreditation Criteria for Schools and Programs

  • 2016 Accreditation Criteria
    • CEPH does not make substantive changes to documents after they have been adopted by the Council. However, as we work with our schools and programs to respond to the criteria, we may identify opportunities for clarification that can be achieved by making minor changes to the criteria language and/or documentation requests. For full transparency, a red line version of the document will be added to this page each time a change is made so that comparisons to the previous version can be made easily.
    • March 16, 2018 red line version
