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. An eligible forensic science program must be located in a regionally accredited institution of higher education that requires state, province, or equivalent approval.
Forensic science programs outside the United States are also eligible if they do not have an established forensic science education accreditation system in their jurisdiction.
Ongoing information conveyed through the online application and self-study system is confidential and accessible to only the user/institution, the FEPAC Commission, and its designees (i.e. On-Site Evaluation Team, FEPAC Administrative Assessment Team).
