Cost of Accreditation


There are two different kinds of costs associated with CIPS accreditation: (1) initial accreditation review fees and (2) annual maintenance fees. Fee schedules are subject to change from one cycle to another and the updated versions are posted on our website every July.

The fee for an on-site review is based upon the size of the review team. Each review team includes a team chair and varying number of program evaluators. Typically, three program evaluators are required for one program visit using one set of criteria and four program evaluators are required for a visit involving multiple criteria.
