Program Review

The Program Review process, which occurs during Year Five of the accreditation cycle, provides the Commission and the Institutional Review Team with evidence that an institution is consistently meeting program standards. Once programs have submitted full narrative responses to standards with supporting documentation during Initial Program Review (IPR) and are approved, programs will not be required to submit full narrative responses to standards again, unless it is determined that there is inadequate evidence to demonstrate implementation and it is determined that a full review of the standards is needed. The program documents enumerated in the instructions below provide the required information for the initial review in Year Five. If the review team determines that additional narrative or documentation is needed, the institution will be able to provide it prior to the site visit. Please note: Required course matrix templates will be posted soon.
