Academic Program Reviews

To assess and improve the quality of programs, institutions engage in periodic review of their degree and certificate offerings. New doctoral programs are required to submit reports in the first, third, and fifth years of operation to determine if commitments made during the proposal process are being met. Coordinating Board staff also review academic programs on a rolling five-year basis to ensure that they meet Board-mandated minimal thresholds of productivity. Questions about these resources should be directed to AHA@highered.texas.gov.
