What is a Substantive Change?

A substantive change is any change made to the program that may result in a change to the delivery or process of program administration.  Examples of substantive changes include change of degree level being offered, change in program leadership (i.e. Program Director), institutionally internal relocation of program (e.g. change in department in which program is housed), or a change in resources from the University.  All of these changes can be submitted in the ‘Substantive Change’ section on eAccreditation.
