The University initiated a formal program review process in spring 2009. Most programs without professional, external accreditation were reviewed first and will continue to be reviewed on a five-year cycle. Initiation of programs with professional, external accreditation began this fall and will coincide with external accreditation cycles.

Program Review Process Tracks

  • WSCUC-Only: Programs that do not have professional or external accreditation.
  • WSCUC-Plus: Programs that have professional, discipline-specific accreditation.

Program Review Cycle

  • WSCUC-Only: Six-year cycle - the third cycle is from 2015-2021.
  • WSCUC-Plus: These programs will follow their professional accreditation cycle. These programs will follow their professional accreditation cycle and program review materials.
