Major Degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level undergo a comprehensive academic program review as guided by the Council for Postsendondary Education (CPE). The academic program review process includes a discussion of the program's contributions to academic quality, assessment of student learning, relationship to institutional and statewide educational priorities, and analysis of data trends in enrollment, student success, and other programmatic performance measures.

The academic program review builds upon the annual student learning outcomes assessment process by providing a formalized reflection process every five-years in support of the university's continuous improvement efforts.

New programs undergo an initial review according to the requirements below and then the program will be placed into the university's regular 5 year rotation.

Associate Degree programs will be reviewed three years after implementation. Upon a successful Council review, these programs will be placed on the regular institutional program review cycle.

Baccalaureate Degree programs will be reviewed five years after implementation. Upon a successful Council review, these programs will be placed on the regular institutional program review cycle.

Master’s Degree programs will be reviewed four years after implementation. Upon a successful Council review, these programs will be placed on the regular institutional program review cycle.

Doctoral Degree programs will undergo an abbreviated interim review three years after implementation and a full review three years after the interim review. Upon completion of a successful abbreviated Council review, these programs will be put on the regular institutional program review cycle.
