Academic Policies Subcommittees
APC Curriculum (APC-C)
APC-C is responsible for reviewing all curricular revisions including changes in current programs, submission of new programs, revisions of existing courses, and submission of new courses. The following page includes submission deadlines, Courseleaf links, resources for preparing and submitting curriculum revisions, etc.
APC-P is responsible for creating, maintaining, and improving mechanisms for facilitating academic operations that ensure quality higher education at Ithaca College. The following page includes the policy proposal form, policy proposal tracker, and an updated list of approved policies.
The purpose of the periodic academic program review and self study is to ensure the continuing quality and strength of academic programs and to meet the program assessment requirements of our various accrediting agencies.
The academic program review currently happens on an 8 to 10 year cycle. Departments prepare a self-study during the academic year, and submit a draft to their dean and the APC Assessment Subcommittee for a preliminary review in January.
