AR 4021: Program Discontinuance

Mt. Hood Community College is committed to continuously reviewing and evaluating its educational programs. The college maintains a process for reviewing educational programs as needed, to ensure they meet legal standards, budget criteria, and/or employment and workforce viability.

A plan for discontinuing a program will be developed with review and input from administrative leaders, classified staff, faculty, and employer/workforce advisory groups.

In the case of a program discontinuation, the college coordinates with the Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) of the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC); and provides notification to MHCC’s accreditation liaison officer (ALO), the applicable accreditation body(ies), and other stakeholders of the substantive change.
