Follow-Up on New Programs:
If your Category I proposal is for a new degree or certificate program, there will be a three-year and a five-year follow up review to ensure that adequate progress is being made toward the goals of the program. Both reviews will be initiated by the Office of Academic Programs, Assessment and Accreditation. See Policy on Three- and Five-Year Year Follow Up Review.
