Full Description

New England Institute of Technology is an applicant for accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (www.ceph.org). The accreditation review will address the MPH generalist degree program included in the accreditation unit, as defined in the Council’s letter accepting the application. Other degrees and areas of study offered by this institution will not be included in the unit of accreditation review.

The date of initial accreditation will be whichever of the two dates occur later: either 1) the date on which our application was accepted by the Council (6/16/2018) or 2) the date on which the most recent extension of applicant status was granted, if applicable. 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.
