3.2 Expedited Approval Process

After reviewing the submission, conferring with the proposing institution, and receiving further information as needed, the Council’s Appraisal Committee will come to its decision:

a)    That the institution proceed with the proposed changes/new programs;
b)    That it consult further with the institution, over details of interest or concern, regarding the proposed changes/new programs. It can be anticipated that these subsequent consultations will normally be brief and affirmative in their outcome.

The outcomes of these Expedited Approvals will be conveyed to the proposing institution, through the identified authoritative contact, directly by the Executive Director and reported to the Quality Council.

The final decision of the Appraisal Committee will be conveyed to the proposing institution, by the Quality Council, within forty-five days of receipt of a final and complete submission.
