No doubt... it is C. Prohibit from + [gerund]
Ex: You are prohibited from drinking alcohol while taking the GMAT.

( Although, I think I perform much better if they did allow me to drink alcohol during the test :-) )

I'll go with C. 'from accepting' is the best form between A,B and C. D and E are plain awkward.
