Academic Program Approval & Review

Students in a Fitchburg State University classroom

The Board of Higher Education coordinates the review and approval of new academic programs at Massachusetts public colleges and universities, independent institutions chartered after 1943, and out-of-state institutions seeking to offer courses for college credit in Massachusetts.

In addition to academic program reviews, the Board of Higher Education's Academic office designs and implements system-wide initiatives, such as the Commonwealth Honors Program, the Police Career Incentive Program and Student Transfer Compacts, in support of the agenda of the Board of Higher Education.
