Program Approval Procedures Manual.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This manual is designed to provide guidance for Illinois community college districts in preparing program proposals, applications for approval of courses or units of public service, or applications for reasonable and moderate extensions of approved programs. After an overview of the program approval and program review processes, the next five sections of the report outline specific procedures. The first of these sections discusses approval of units of instruction by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), covering topics such as action on new majors, withdrawal of a unit of instruction, cooperative instructional programs, statewide and regional instructional planning, contracting with other schools for instruction, and approval of extension programs. The next section focuses on approval of courses, considers the documentation required by the ICCB for new or revised courses, changes in course data, course classification, credit criteria, accelerated courses, and independent study. The final sections outline procedures for the approval of units of public service; for the approval of funds under the Disadvantaged Student Grant Program; and for the approval of units of research. Appendices include a list of the 32 occupations for which programs of instruction must meet state licensing requirements and a sample of ICCB forms for program approval with accompanying instructions.
