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. 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.
All institutions are required to submit responses to Program Review for each program they are approved to offer. Program Review submissions must be posted to an accreditation website. Linked drives or folders, electronic files , or webpages that only contain one large document will not be accepted. Submission must be in the form of a functional webpage.
The Program Review Submission Instructions below are for currently approved programs. If an institution is considering submitting a new program for approval, skip to the Required Course Matrices for Program Review to download the relevant matrix and ensure that you are following the instructions provided on the Initial Program Review (IPR) page.
