Program Checklist for Self-Study
A complete self-study must include a checklist for the program files within the document. The program must identify the page number for all items on the checklist. The checklist aids the program in ensuring all required items are included in the self-study and is used by the review team and site evaluators for note-taking as they assess the self-study.
