The Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC) is currently accepting applications for forensic science, forensic digital evidence, and crime scene investigations programs for review during the 2024 review cycle.

FEPAC's primary mission is to maintain and enhance the quality of forensic science education through a formal evaluation and accreditation system for college-level academic programs that lead to a baccalaureate or graduate degree.

FEPAC accredits forensic science education programs that lead to a bachelor's or master's degree in forensic science or in a natural or computer science with a forensic science concentration. FEPAC also accredits programs that will lead to a bachelor's degree in crime scene investigations. Eligible programs must be located in a regionally accredited institution of higher education that requires state, province, or equivalent approval.

For additional information on accreditation and detailed FEPAC requirements, please review the FEPAC Accreditation Standards. Detailed accreditation information and instructions can be accessed through the FEPAC website Accreditation. Here you will find the FEPAC Standards, applications for undergraduate and graduate programs, FEPAC Policies & Procedures, and other documents that will be helpful in completing your application.

Download the application forms to your hard drive for completion. Once done, forward the completed form to Nancy Jackson, FEPAC Accreditation Coordinator (njackson@aafs.org) or by mail to:

410 N 21st Street
Colorado Springs, CO 80904
