    Program Viability
       Key factors which may be used in identifying and evaluating
        at-risk programs include:
           Insufficient frequency of course section offerings to assure
            reasonable availability for students to complete the program
            within its stated duration
           Low rate for student achievement of program goals (i.e.,
            successful completion rate)
           Low retention within courses
           Low term-to-term persistence for those in courses in the
            major
           Lack of demand in the workforce or cyclic nature of the
            workforce
           Unavailability of the transfer major
    9      Declining need for this program by other programs
    Program Viability
   Key factors which may be used in identifying and evaluating at-risk
    programs include:
        Insufficient numbers of faculty, including full-time faculty and in their
         particular expertise (use of faculty development or sabbatical resources
         may be appropriate)
        Insufficient physical resources including facilities, equipment, and supplies
        Inadequate levels of outside support such as classified staff, course
         offerings, library materials, and workplace learning opportunities
        Adjustment of course scheduling: times of day, block scheduling, short
         courses, frequency and number of sections, open entry/open exit
        Analysis of demand for the program through use of labor market
         information which may result in curriculum modifications such as adding
         options for higher demand specialties
        Whether course outlines have been updated in the last five years
        Articulation of programs/courses: K-12, Tech Prep, etc., and a four-year
         sequencing of offerings to ensure student ability to transition to
    10   subsequent levels
Program Viability
    Possible outcomes of program viability:
      Program extension or suspension
      Program revitalization

      Program reduction

      Continue or accept the program in its current

       state
      Program consolidation

      Program discontinuance
