Academic Program Planning
UNCG is a responsive and innovative institution, and as a result, changes pertaining to academic programs are expected. The Office of Assessment and Accreditation’s (OAA) role is to ensure that changes requiring more than UNCG approval are identified and completed. Departments and programs considering changes are encouraged to contact the Office of Assessment and Accreditation (OAA) early in the planning stages for a consultation.
There are up to four distinct approval processes to navigate, depending upon the type of change.
1. UNCG (internal process)
2. UNC General Administration
3. Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC)
4. Gainful Employment
