Once accreditation is achieved, a program retains its accredited status for six (6) years. The accreditation period runs annually from July to June. For example, if a program is accredited in July of 2017, the program is in good standing until June of 2023. Re-accrediting programs begin the re-accreditation process during the fall prior to the year in which their program’s accreditation status expires (see Re-Accreditation Timeline).
In order to maintain accreditation, programs are required to pay their annual accreditation fee ($2,300 for Undergraduate or Graduate Programs and $3450 for schools hosting both Undergraduate and Graduate Environmental Health Programs) and to complete an Annual Update Survey, which provides EHAC with important statistical information related to changes in faculty, research interests, student enrollment and graduation rates. The Annual Update Survey is conducted via Survey Monkey and must be completed annually in early March.
