Academic Program Review

Academic program review provides a valuable and periodic opportunity to assess an academic program’s quality and effectiveness, stimulate planning and continuous improvement, and encourage strategic development. It also provides the opportunity to examine program strengths, deficiencies, relevance, and goals in a strategic way. And finally, program review fulfills accreditation and state requirements and assures institutional quality to students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and other stakeholders. 

All academic programs must be reviewed at least once every three years. The first review for new academic programs is required approximately four years after implementation. After the initial four-year review, continuing academic programs must complete a program review at least once every three years.  

Program review consists of the self-study report to include: 

    • Overview 
    • Continuous improvement of the previous Academic Program Review 
    • Student Learning and Assessment 
    • Student Profile and Trends 
    • Program statistics 
    • Overall Analysis.  
The program review cycle is as follows:
