Coronavirus information

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the University of Alaska Anchorage has taken steps to protect the health and safety of our campus community. Visit the University of Alaska Coronavirus Information website to learn how UAA and the university system are responding to this situation. Find links to communications, policy guidance, resources and information about the university's community restrictions, which apply to all faculty, staff and students. The UAA Student Health and Counseling Center remains open at this time to serve UAA students. For information about COVID-19 symptoms and current health recommendations, visit the CDC website and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

    Once the pre-prospectus is approved, the faculty initiator will receive an expanded prospectus to complete.  Access the expanded prospectus by selecting your name/role in the drop-down menu, and selecting “Edit.”

    The expanded prospectus includes the five answers to the pre-prospectus questions and additional questions regarding:  enrollment; capacity and quality; affected programs; program accreditation/special certifications; assessment; implementation schedule; e-learning options; faculty and staff; and supporting documents. (For reference, faculty can preview the questions included in the full prospectus.)

    In addition to responding to the additional questions, faculty may expand their answers that rolled over from the pre-prospectus. 

    Required additional documents include a Board of Regents Program Action Request (PAR) and an Assessment Plan. 

    The Assessment Handbook and an assessment plan template are available on the Academic Assessment Repository.  The Assessment Plan is reviewed by the Faculty Senate Academic Assessment Committee concurrent with the curriculum approval process. Because it is integrally connected to the curriculum, faculty develop the assessment plan as part of developing the curriculum for a new program.

    The dean’s office and faculty should consult with OAA as they work on the prospectus and Board of Regents Program Action Request (PAR) form.  OAA will provide the latest version of the Board of Regents PAR form.

    Consult with the Office of Academic Affairs early on for assistance with this process.  Email OAA.  


    1. New programs will develop an assessment plan as part of the proposal process. The plan is submitted at the same time and in the electronic form as the program catalog copy.
    2. Existing programs may revise their assessment plans as they make other changes to their curriculum.
    3. If a program plans to make changes solely to the assessment plan or Program Student Learning Outcomes, submit through the curriculum management system.  After selecting “Yes” for the first question to indicate the only changes are to the assessment plan, the form and review workflow are shortened.
    4. Since the curriculum management system is new, some program assessment plans are not yet attached in the system. To submit your assessment plan without other program changes, follow the instructions above in #3.


    Contact the Faculty Senate Academic Assessment Committee (AAC) to determine if the uploaded plan must go through the AAC for review.  The AAC reviews all new and revised assessment plans.


    If you are an approver, access the curriculum management system, and select your name/role from the drop-down menu.  From this site you will be able to approve all curriculum, including new and revised program catalog copy, new program prospectuses, and new and revised courses.
