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.
