Program changes

ANMAC works with education providers to ensure that continued compliance with accreditation standards does not stifle innovation or continuous quality improvement. While program changes are supported and encouraged it is important that an education provider reports program changes to ANMAC.

Reporting requirements

Program changes are classified into two different reporting requirements, retrospective of the change or prospective of the change.

However, ANMAC considers the following program changes to be significant risks that must be reported to ANMAC prospectively:

  • Number and/or location of campuses
  • Program delivery mode
  • Number of students enrolled into the program.

The reporting requirements for program changes are determined by the risk rating of the program. Further details are provided in the National Accreditation Guidelines (770 KB).

Low-risk Medium-risk High-risk

Retrospective reporting on all changes except a change in:

  • the number and/or location of campuses
  • program delivery mode
  • the number of students enrolled into the program.

Retrospective reporting on all changes except:

  • where specified as part of the Outcome of Accreditation Assessment Report
  • a change in the number and/or location of campuses
  • a change to program delivery mode
  • a change in the number of students enrolled.

Prospective reporting on all changes.

How to report a change

Prospective changes

Education providers need to complete an Intention to Submit form (214 KB). ANMAC will then contact you to discuss planned timeframes to assess program changes.

Retrospective changes

ANMAC is notified of retrospective changes in the Program Monitoring Report, which is completed by education providers on their approved program’s accreditation anniversary.

Approved programs without a risk rating

If your approved program has not had a risk assessment, report your changes by completing an Intention to Submit form (214 KB). ANMAC will then contact you to discuss planned timeframes to assess program changes.
