APR Schedule

In accordance with the university's academic assessment policy, all university programs are reviewed every six years. The Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (PIE), in consultation with the provost and Dean’s Council, coordinates the schedule of reviews and notifies programs when they are scheduled for review.  Programs may request an alteration of their scheduled review when circumstances warrant it, usually to align with accreditation reporting. The provost may also initiate unscheduled reviews in exceptional circumstances
