Program Review and Specialized Accreditation

 Policies, Guidelines, and Forms

The Florida Board of Governor’s (BOG) considers student learning outcomes assessment (BOG Regulation 8.016) in the broader context of academic program quality. Outcomes assessment is viewed by the BOG as closely connected to Academic Program Review (BOG Regulation 8.015) and specialized accreditation (BOG Regulation 3.006)

The BOG requires the periodic review of all academic degree programs in state universities at least once every seven years from the date of the preceding review or from the implementation date of new academic programs. The results of the program reviews are expected to inform strategic planning, program development, and budgeting decisions at the university level and, when appropriate, at the state level.

The College of Business’ degree programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The College of Education programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
