College and University  Program Accreditation

CAEMHSE has established criteria for accrediting bachelor's degree EM programs.  See the CAEMHSE Guide to Accreditation (15 September 2020) document.  CAEMHSE members are afforded access to the CAEMHSE Emergency Management Education Self-Study Guidelines (15 September 2020).

A college/university normally makes inquiry into program accreditation by contacting CAEMHSE (, then becomes a supporting member and/or makes application for accreditation (which includes membership).  The program then initiates a self-study while coordinating the campus visit (on-site assessment). Initial accreditation is for five years, with re-accreditation possible for ten years.

CAEMHSE (primarily as its predecessor organization, FFHEA (Foundation for Higher Education Accreditation) has accredited EM programs within these institutions.
