Program Review

UNT conducts periodic reviews of all academic degree programs in order to promote academic quality and productivity and to assure alignment with UNT’s mission. Academic programs are reviewed in the context of an overall departmental review. The department, dean, graduate dean, provost and vice president for academic affairs use the results to guide university planning, determine program directions, establish objectives, shape institutional goals and promote institutional effectiveness.

University Accreditation is responsible for coordinating the program review process. Although most programs are reviewed every 7 years, a program can be reviewed outside the typical 7-year cycle, at the request of the supervising dean.


Access to Qualtrics survey software is available through the MyUNT web portal.  UNT staff and faculty needing assistance with Qualtrics can contact for help.
