Maintaining your course accreditation

Advising NUCAP of proposed changes to an accredited course or the academic unit hosting the course

University academics are responsible for maintaining the accredited course during the five(5) year accreditation period. If an academic unit intends making significant changes to an accredited course or the academic unit hosting the course and it requires approval by the relevant university authority eg. academic board or senate and as relevant to accreditation, then the university academic unit should notify the NUCAP manager using the change request form.

The intended changes must be approved by the relevant university authority and then approved by NUCAP committee  prior to implementation. In order to avoid any consequent change to an accredited status, university academic units are strongly encouraged to liaise with the NUCAP manager at least sixty (60) days prior to submitting the proposed changes to the relevant university authority.
