Each department is placed on a seven-year intensive review cycle. Departments requiring external accrediting agency visits use their respective self study as one of their program reviews. Departments that fall below enrollment and/or functioning thresholds could incur an immediate review. Electronic submission of materials (i.e. portfolio, assessment website) is the preferred mechanism, and enhance availability of the information to relevant persons, including external peer reviewers. A template for submission of materials is available to assist in the review process.
