Program Review Schedules for NSCS
NSCS Board Policy #4200
Existing programs shall be reviewed on a regular basis by each College. Such review shall be for the purpose of determining the quality and effectiveness of each program, the efficiency with which each is delivered, and for the purpose of avoiding unnecessary duplication. Such review shall be consistent with state statutes and shall contain both qualitative and quantitative measures representative of sound academic practices. The review process provides for evaluation of
each academic program once every seven (7) years and is primarily a self-study conducted at the department, school and college levels. Although designed to assist in program improvement to enhance program quality and promote attainment of educational goals, the review is also useful in planning and assuring efficient use of resources.
