CAAHEP assesses dues and fees that are necessary and reasonable. All fees are approved by the CAAHEP Board of Directors and published on the CAAHEP website before the fee changes' effective date.

Program Accreditation Fee
Each CAAHEP accredited program is assessed an annual Accredited Program Fee set by the Board of Directors. The Accredited Program Fee is based on the number of CAAHEP accredited programs at a program sponsor location (campus).

Programs reviewed under different CAAHEP Standards are counted as unique programs. Programs with multiple learning concentrations or award levels for the same profession (defined as being evaluated under the same CAAHEP Standards) will be considered one program and assessed one Accredited Program Fee. Satellites or alternate locations are not billed a CAAHEP Accredited Program Fee.

See the Program Fees chart below and the CAAHEP Policies and Procedures Manual, posted above, for complete details.
