External Review Procedures for Academic Degree Programs
Each program review process spans two academic years.
In year 1, the program prepares for the review during the academic year prior to the site visit. Preparations include selecting reviewers, writing the self-study, and planning the site visit. Data used in the self-study report are provided by UMD's Office of Institutional Research by the end of year 1 fall semester.
In year 2, the site visit occurs, the team submits a report, and the program prepares a response for internal use.
