Schedule of Reviews: Not to Exceed Eight Years

Cyclical Program Reviews must be held according to the schedule laid out by the university, with not more than eight years between any CPR. In other words, a review must begin no later than eight years from the academic year in which the program was last scheduled to be cyclically reviewed.

Delays in any step of the cyclical program review process (i.e., a delayed site visit or delayed FAR/IP) shall not lead to extensions of this eight-year timeframe. However, universities may wish to shorten the eight-year cycle in order to bring a program’s review schedule in line with an accreditation review or with the cyclical review of other programs in the department. For more information about coordinating a Cyclical Program Review with an accreditation or other review, please see the Quality Assurance Framework, Section 5.5.
