Accreditation establishes standards of practice, assures that education requirements reflect the current needs of the profession, and ensures that the school has been evaluated and has met standards established by the profession. The UC Berkeley School of Public Health is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs.

CEPH’s accreditation procedures require that the school periodically conducts a self-evaluation, submit a self-study document, and host a team of peer reviewers to validate the self-study during a site visit. The self-study process engages stakeholders, including faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community partners, to reflect on the school’s accomplishments and areas for improvement, and evaluate the school on criteria such as governance, resources, curriculum, research, diversity, and student services.

In 2023, CEPH approved the reaccreditation of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health for a seven-year term, through December 31, 2030.
