Academic Program REview Schedule

Arkansas Code §6-61-214 requires that the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board (AHECB) review existing academic programs.  All certificate and degree programs offered by public colleges and universities in Arkansas will be reviewed every 7 - 10 years.  Institutional program review schedules are on file at ADHE.  This Program Review Information Packet offers guidance on completion of program reviews to meet the requirements for program quality.  Externally accredited program reviews are also listed here, but links to their accreditors and the standards by which they will be evaluated can be found under Accreditation on this website.

Arkansas Tech maintains a mid-cycle Internal Program Review process for those programs that are reviewed on a greater than five year cycle.  Programs that are reviewed by an external accreditor on less than a six year cycle or required to file yearly reports are exempt from Internal Program Review process. The internal academic program review follows a similar self-study process aided by an Internal Program Review template and other resources.
