Why does the PCAH need a 6th Edition?
Structure of the
6th Edition
PCAH:

• Focusing on 2 elements:
- Criteria used by CO staff for
curriculum review
- Approval and Legal Standards

• Requires revisions only when
regulations or curriculum approval
criteria/standards change

6th Edition

Credit Course Review
Criteria and Standards
PCAH: Appendices
and Other Changes

• Sixth edition will include an Index

• Appendices will not be part of
formally approved PCAH so they
can be revised as necessary

• Proposed content:
- Resource pages
- Title 5 and Ed. Code tables and text
- Credit hour calculation samples


Anything else?
Next Steps?
Significant Changes:

PCAH re-write group needs to finish the work of drafting and editing

Final draft will be shared with SACC for review and endorsement

Final draft will then go to Chancellor’s Office Legal Review – this could take a while!

Final drat will also have to be reviewed by Department of Finance to make sure there are no situations contained therein which might lead to an unfunded mandate

Final draft then goes to the Board of Governors
