General Application Process and Fees

Application (available on website for download)
You will provide:

  • Information about your educational and professional preparation
  • A list of 30 site visits conducted in the past few years
  • A recent case study from your own experience
  • Five professional references
  • An affirmation of your commitment to ethical standards
  • A $200 application fee

Your application will be reviewed by two members of the CEP Reading Committee.

If your application is approved, you will be invited to schedule a time to sit for the CEP Assessment. Your assessment will be reviewed, completely anonymously by two readers -- they will never know whose assessment they reviewed.

On the assessment, you will be expected to:

  • Write institutional descriptions for two of four institutions selected by the Commission from the list of 30 site visits you submitted in your application
  • Evaluate two vignettes of hypothetical students and recommend 3-5 institutions you feel would be particularly good matches for each of the students, as well as providing specific rationale supporting your recommendations

There is a $200 assessment fee (any applicant who initially fails to pass the assessment is provided with specific feedback on areas needing improvement and will be allowed 12 months to sit for the assessment again without paying an additional fee)

Certification is granted for five years. There is an annual fee of $75 to keep the credential valid.

Recertification is required every five years. In addition to meeting the continuing professional development requirements for recertification, there is a $100 recertification fee that also covers the annual $75 renewal fee for that year.

Note: Fees indicated are current as of January 1, 2018. They are subject to change at the discretion of the Commission.
