Academic Policy: Distance Learning Programs
The committee reviewed and discussed the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) policy that all distance learning degree programs must receive prior approval from NCA before they are offered by WSU. The committee briefly reviewed the documentation that is required for submission to NCA. It was agreed that a university curriculum policy and procedure will be developed to address the NCA requirements. A policy will be drafted and reviewed in a special meeting to be held by UCAPC on January 18. The special meeting was called in the hope of submitting a policy proposal to the Faculty Senate at its February 7 meeting.
For UCAPC's meeting of February 8, proposals must be received no later than 12:00 noon January 27. Proposals received after that deadline will be placed on the March agenda.
