New Academic Assessment Plans

Assessment plans for all new programs - undergraduate, graduate, professional, and certificate - must be submitted to the Academic Assessment Committee via the approval site, using the ALP/AAC path. Once the program is approved, Institutional Assessment is notified and plans enter the annual renewal and data reporting cycle.

New academic assessment plans are due by the 4th Friday of the first semester there are students in the program. For guidance, see the procedures for Developing New Assessment Plans.
