Program Planning and Review

The University of Idaho is required to complete program proposals or provide prior notifications to the Idaho State Board of Education for creating or modifying academic and teacher preparation programs.  Additionally, the University must submit a prospectus to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) which documents the approval by the institution's governing body.  This action is to maintain accreditation and comply with reporting policy.  While the decision to make changes is an institutional prerogative and responsibility, the Commission is obligated to monitor the effect of the change on the validity of the institution's accreditation status with the Commission.
