Welcome! APAA facilitates and coordinates the preparation, oversight, and implementation of academic programs and courses.

Undergraduate Academic Program Review (UAPR)

APAA coordinates the peer review of undergraduate academic programs.  The in-depth reviews occur on a ten-year cycle, with the action plan follow-up in year three. The review process is performed in partnership with the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council.

Graduate program reviews follow a similar schedule. Reviews are coordinated by the Graduate School and conducted in partnership with the OSU Graduate Council.
