First-Time Classification

For the 2020 classification, campuses that have not previously received the classification will need to submit an application using what is referred to as the “first-time documentation framework.” A PDF version of the 2015 Documentation Framework, to be used for planning purposes only, is available here.  There is also a guide attached to this version to assist institutions in the documentation planning process. There will be a few minor revisions to the framework for 2020; the new documentation framework will be available in January 2018.

Re-Classification

For the 2020 classification, institutions that received the classification in 2010 and are seeking to retain the classification will be able to re-apply through a reclassification process. A PDF version of the 2015 application for reclassification, to be used for planning purposes only, is available here. There will be a few minor revisions to the framework for 2020; the new documentation framework will be available in January 2018.
