The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools have specific requirements for reporting the creation, modification and deletion of distance education programs. The Center for Teaching and Learning works in collaboration with academic units and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs to report SFA’s programs appropriately.
Academic unit heads and/or program coordinators submit documentation for all programs that qualify as distance education (see definitions) through Curriculog. Please review our Distance Education Program Approval Process Flowchart for assistance in identifying the appropriate forms to complete.
All distance education program creation, modification and deletion are required to be submitted to SACS as well as the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. SACS requires fall notifications to be received by January 1, and spring notifications by July 1. Notifications that miss these deadlines will be required to move their implementation date to the following term.
To begin this process, login to Curriculog and choose from the following forms:
- Undergraduate Program - New Distance Education Program
- Graduate Program - New Distance Education Program
Existing programs that require modality modification
- Undergraduate Program – Distance Education Modality Modification
- Graduate Program – Distance Education Modality Modification
As you complete the Curriculog form, you may need this Distance Education Program Course List.
SFA is required to make public whether a program meets or does not meet professional licensure or certification required for employment in an occupation in individual states. If a program is designed to, advertised as fulfilling, or it fulfills educational requirements for a specific professional licensure or certification required for employment in an occupation, contact Javier Vega (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional reporting requirements.
