Spring 2016 Mid-Cycle Review

The Mid-Cycle Review (MCR) is a review of each institution near the midpoint of its period of accreditation, focusing particularly on student achievement. The Review is performed by WSCUC staff, and draws on evidence from an update of the institution’s Inventory of Educational Effectiveness Indicators and retention and graduation data, as well as any trends emerging from Annual Reports to surface any potential issues across the Standards. The overall purpose of the Mid-Cycle Review is to "identify problems with an institution's or program's continued compliance with agency standards" while "tak[ing] into account institutional or program strengths and stability" (U.S. Department of Education, §602.19(b)).
