Review and Approval Overview

Actions related to any credit bearing credential (e.g., content and credit hours, mode of instruction, the department delivering the program, location where the credential is delivered) require varying University and external reviews and approvals. A summary of academic program reviews and approvals may be found in the Review and Approval Processes Matrix

All schools have representatives who serve as a primary point of contact with Institutional Research and Analytics (IRA) on academic accreditation and compliance issues. Departments should consult with their school contact and the following IRA staff upon initiation of an action to understand policy and procedural requirements:

  • For questions regarding new credentials (i.e., degreed, certificates): Alena Herklotz
  • For questions regarding changes to existing credentials (e.g., new minor, change in credits, program closures) and distance education: Cheryl Carroll
  • For other topics: Christina Morell
