After an institution has received approval for a substantive change, the Commission will specify follow-up monitoring. For certain substantive changes – typically moving to the higher or lower degree; establishing an off-campus location; undertaking an expansion of scope; undergoing a change of ownership, including a merger –the follow-up will include a campus visit to assess initial implementation of the change. The visit is generally conducted by one or two evaluators and takes place over a period of one to two days.
