What is CEPH Accreditation?

The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is the nationally recognized accrediting body for both schools of public health and public health programs.

CEPH-accredited schools and programs offer the following key benefits to students:

Comprehensiveness: The CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health provide a variety of degrees in public health, including undergraduate, masters’ and doctoral degrees in a number of area of study.

Rigor: Each CEPH-accredited school and program goes through a rigorous accreditation process on a regular basis to assure students of a quality educational experience.

Flexibility: Many CEPH- accredited schools and programs of public health offer online programs, dual degree programs and executive programs.

Qualification: Eligibility to sit for the Certified in Public Health (CPH) exam, administered by the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE).

Opportunity: Eligibility for public health internships and fellowships sponsored by various federal agencies, as well as student assistance resources that are available only through accredited schools and programs.

Recognition: Because CEPH-accredited schools and programs are peer-reviewed, students can be sure their institution has met the standards established by CEPH.
