CPH Fees & Discounts
The regular fee for the CPH exam is $385.
Graduate-level students and alumni of all CEPH-accredited and CEPH-applicant schools and programs are eligible to take the exam following verification of their degree or degree status. Members of the public health workforce who meet our “work experience” criteria are also eligible to take the CPH exam.
NOTE: If your school or program is not listed as CEPH accredited, you might meet the requirements to take the exam through the “work experience” eligibility criteria.
For detailed eligibility criteria, see our Eligibility Requirements page. To apply for the exam, visit CPH Central.
