Overview: RIT’s doctoral programs will be reviewed on a seven to ten-year cycle. New doctoral programs will be initially reviewed after year five. The RIT Graduate School will be responsible for tracking the review schedule. This external review process will begin with the longest standing doctoral degree programs. The goal is to review two programs per year (one in fall and one in spring). Colleges will submit a proposed program review timeline to the Provost for approval.
