Program Reviews: Resources, Timeline, and Program Review Cycles

AWC's Academic Programs and Institutional Departments are reviewed on a 5-year cycle. The following guidelines will assist programs/departments in the process.

Program Review Timeline

Program Review Committees should begin working on a program review in August (Fall) of the designated program review cycle (see below) and end on April 15th (Spring) of the following year. For example, a program review beginning in August 2019 is due on April 15, 2020. Program reviews may be completed and submitted early. The timeline was established to allow academic departments time to finalize those program reviews since most faculty are not available in the summer.
