Academic Program Review

Per policy of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, all academic programs must be periodically reviewed. This review must involve both qualitative and quantitative data, and decisions made must be based on evidence. These reviews take place every five (5) years for new programs, seven (7) years for undergraduate programs, and every ten (10) years for graduate programs.

All program reviews must include an evaluation of the program’s viability, productivity, and quality according to the guidelines defined by the institution. Specifically, the accreditation staff provides the following services:

  • Tracks a multi-year program review schedule to document key historic dates, upcoming dates, contacts, and other pertinent information.
  • Manages the program review process by supporting academic programs under review and facilitating the identification of actions and decisions resulting from program reviews.
  • Submits program review documentation to the University System of Georgia.
