1.5 Ratification of the Institutional Quality Assurance Processes

Before implementing its IQAP for New Program Approvals, Expedited Approvals, and Cyclical Program Reviews, each university must first submit its IQAP to the Quality Council for ratification. The Council will test its consistency with the substance and principles set out in the respective Quality Council protocols. The same process will apply whenever an institution implements any substantive change to its own quality assurance processes. The Quality Council will conduct its subsequent audit of institutional compliance with the university’s ratified Institutional Quality Assurance Process for cyclical program reviews.
