Academic Program Review Share This OHSU Content

All of OHSU's degree and certificate programs are subject to periodic reviews of academic quality.  The reviews are based on OHSU's Academic Program Review policy, which was developed during Summer and Fall 2010.

All programs are to continue their regular reviews as planned, however, every five years these internal reviews will be presented to the Academic Program Review Committee, which will determine if the program is meeting the institution's standards of academic quality and integrity.

To facilitate the program review process, the Provost's Office created a series of documents to educate stakeholders about the purpose for the reviews and provide time-saving resources for those actively engaged in them. The report can be be completed and submitted in one of two ways, either online using the link below, or as a Word document, also linked below.

Five-Year Academic Program Review Forms

There are two ways to complete and submit the five-year academic program review. Please choose the method that works best for your program.

1. Online APR Form

2. APR Form in a Word doc

The APR requires the completion of two additional tables containing faculty data:

The online form is located on the NWCCU SharePoint site and is built in Microsoft InfoPath. In order to fill this form out online, Microsoft Office 2010 must be running. There are attach file features built into the online form so programs can easily upload additional information including Tables 3.1 and 3.3. Once the online form is complete, use the "Submit" button and the form will automatically be emailed to the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation.

When completing the APR Form as a Word document. Please email the document to the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation as an attachment and include all supplemental information, such as Tables 3.1 and 3.3, as clearly labeled attachments as well.

If you experience any difficulty with any of the forms, please email Sarah Kennedy or call, 503-494-4030.
