Chamberlain University is an applicant for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health. The accreditation review will address the generalist Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program. Other degrees and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review. Council on Education for Public Health is located at 1010 Wayne Avenue, Suite 220, Silver Spring, MD 20910, www.ceph.org.
Chamberlain’s application for CEPH accreditation of the MPH program was accepted on October 7, 2017. While future accreditation is not guaranteed, if accreditation is granted, the date of initial accreditation will be either the date on which our application was accepted by the Council (October 7, 2017) or the date on which the most recent extension of the applicant status was granted, if applicable, whichever occurs later. The Council assigns the date of initial accreditation during the Council meeting at which the accreditation decision is made. Entry into the process and acceptance of an application are not a guarantee of initial accreditation.
Chamberlain University’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program is currently in Pre-Candidacy for Accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation (CSWE).
Pre-Candidacy for a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation indicates that it has submitted an application to be reviewed for Candidacy. A program that has attained Pre-Candidacy has not yet been reviewed by the Commission on Accreditation or been verified to be in compliance with the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards. The Council on Social Work Education does not publicly disclose whether programs have currently attained Pre-Candidacy Status until they are granted Candidacy.
Students who enter the program while it is still in Pre-Candidacy will not be recognized as attending a program in Candidacy unless the program attains Candidacy in the academic year in which those students enter. The Candidacy Process is typically a three-year process and there is no guarantee that a program in Pre-Candidacy will eventually attain Candidacy or Initial Accreditation. Students who enter programs that attain Candidacy in or before the academic year in which they begin their program of study will be retroactively recognized as having graduated from a CSWE-accredited program once the program attains Initial Accreditation. Candidacy by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation applies to all program sites and program delivery methods of an accredited program.
