A Discussion of the Revised Program Classification Structure.
The process of revising the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) Program Classification Structure (PCS) is now completed. This document is being distributed to inform NCHEMS constituents about the final revisions to the PCS and to describe the reasons why each revision was made. The revision process began in early 1974 when a large cross-section of NCHEMS participating institutions and agencies were asked to suggest changes they felt should be made in the PCS. In general, revisions were made: (1) to accommodate the unique needs of those postsecondary education institutions not adequately served by the current PCS. (2) to include activity centers needed for program planning and analysis but missing the current edition of the PCS. (3) to restructure the PCS where needed, and where feasible, to make it a better programmatic structure and to improve the feasibility of implementation. The rationale for each change is described not only to provide the reader with an understanding of why the change was made but also to help the reader in the effective use of the category for program planning and management.
