Academic Program Approval and involves consideration of student demand for the program, employer demand for the program, demand for services or intellectual property of the program, and alternative forms of delivery and consortial or joint programs. Where other similar programs may serve the same potential student population, evidence must demonstrate that the proposed program (whether or not it is a new academic program or an extension of an existing program) is sufficiently different from the existing program(s) offered by other institutions or that access to the existing program(s) is sufficiently limited to warrant initiation of a new program offering. State Regents Academic Program Approval policy specifies that “Normally, proposed programs in undergraduate core areas consisting of basic liberal arts and sciences disciplines would not be considered unnecessary duplicative. Unnecessary duplication is a more specific concern in vocational/technical, occupational, and graduate and professional programs which meet special manpower needs” (3.4.6 H). Programs must demonstrate demand and no unnecessary duplication issues relative to Langston University – Tulsa, with the policy understanding of duplication of core areas in the basic liberal arts. All new academic programs and all other postsecondary programs in the state system currently delivered in the immediate Tulsa area will be inventoried and tracked for performance as a part of the annual Tulsa Accountability Report designed to monitor academic program delivery and productivity statistics for institutions in the Tulsa area. The following proposal information is necessary to evaluate the new and existing program site requests for consideration for delivery in the Tulsa area. A. Centrality of the Proposed Program to the Institution’s Mission and Approved Function(s) A program should adhere to the role and scope of the institution as set forth in its mission statement and as complemented by the institution’s academic plan. List the objectives of the proposed program and explain how the proposed program relates to the institutional mission, academic plan, and approved function(s). An evaluation will be made as to the centrality of the program to the institution’s mission. There are certain circumstances when institutions may request approval to offer programs outside their function as stated in the Functions of Public Institutions policy.

Requests of this nature should be on a limited basis. (Institution’s response/rationale should follow each criteria, A through I of this policy;

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
