Academic Program Review

In accordance with USF Policy 10-062, all academic degree programs must undergo a comprehensive review on a regular cycle. Programs with specialized accreditation that include external reviews may substitute that process for the purpose of program review in addition to the specialized program self-study template below, which captures items required for annual reporting.

The results of the program reviews are expected to inform strategic planning, program development, and budgeting decisions at the university level and, when appropriate at the state level.


The USF Program Review Procedures provide a description of the Academic Program Review process and guidelines for the reports that are required for the review.
