External Academic Reviews

Specialized Accreditation and Program Review for Academic Programs
at A-State

A-State is dedicated to academic program excellence. All academic programs are reviewed on a regular basis by an external accrediting organization or expert consultant. Furthermore, Arkansas Code §6-61-214 requires that the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board (AHECB) review existing academic programs. All certificate and degree programs offered by public colleges and universities in Arkansas are reviewed every 7 – 10 years.  Accredited/licensed/state certified programs follow the usual review practices and schedule of the accrediting/approval body. Academic programs that are not program-specific accredited/licensed/state certified will be reviewed by external consultants. The full details of Arkansas Code §6-61-214 can be found here.

Please select one of the following categories of programs to learn when the program will be reviewed by an external accrediting organization or expert consultant and the details of the review process.
