Academic Programs

The SC Commission on Higher Education (CHE) requires that new academic programs, program modifications, new certificates, and program terminations be reviewed and approved by the Commission. The CHE reviews the submissions on a pre-established timeline. The CHE policies for program review, review cycles, and blank documents are listed below. Please contact Dr. Kimberly Walker prior to choosing the appropriate form for your academic program updates or changes.

Scholarship Enhancement

The CHE provides guidelines for the South Carolina LIFE and Palmetto Fellows scholarships. Application materials for review of courses and programs can be found on page 6 of the Academic Program and Course Eligibility for Scholarship Enhancement (document below). The CHE reviews Life and Palmetto Fellows scholarship enhancement applications twice per year – January 15 and August 15. Please contact Dr. Kimberly Walker for assistance in crafting and submitting the application for review.
