Please note that effective December 7 2020, the Quality Council's Quality Assurance Framework and Guide will be unavailable due to planned maintenance.

Expedited Approvals

Expedited graduate program reviews only apply to new collaborative programs and/or graduate diplomas.  Please see the Quality Assurance Framework Section 1.6 for definitions of collaborative and diploma programs.

Collaborative and diploma programs do not need a site visit by external reviewers, but do require submission to the Quality Council. Once approved, they will be incorporated into the institution’s schedule for cyclical reviews as part of the parent program.

Each submission will include two volumes, Volume I (Proposal Brief), and Volume II (CVs), using the templates provided.
