Formal Academic Program Reviews

Evaluations & Reviews

Academic Program Review Schedule for All Programs (Undergraduate and Graduate)

All academic programs must conduct an academic program review (APR) annually and submit a formal APR every 5 and 10 years. The self-study and external review (decennial only) are essential to improving programs and planning for their future. The APR process is an important part of maintain our SACSCOC accreditation.  The decennial review is required by the THECB for all graduate programs.

The THECB limits the submission of decennial APR’s to 15% of our graduate program inventory. Where possible, the APR submission dates have been grouped within academic units and aligned with discipline specific external accrediting bodies to minimize administrative workload.

Reference SFA Policy 5.1 and the Academic Program Review Handbook.
