Accreditation Reviews

Although cyclical program reviews may be scheduled to coincide with accreditation reviews, accreditation reviews will not take the place of cyclical reviews. A cyclical program review will normally be conducted in addition to the accreditation review to ensure full consideration of all aspects of the cyclical review.
