2015 EPAS Accreditation Toolkit 

CSWE’s Board of Accreditation (BOA) and Commission on Educational Policy (COEP) are responsible for developing the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). The educational policy was developed by COEP and approved by the CSWE Board of Directors on March 20, 2015. The accreditation standards were developed and approved by BOA on June 11, 2015.

This toolkit encompasses the accreditation materials for the 2015 EPAS for baccalaureate and master's programs. Resources for the newer set of standards, the 2022 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), can be found here.  All programs are encouraged to review the 2022 EPAS Implementation Timeline to determine when the program must operate using the 2022 EPAS.
