Recommendations – Resident Alberta Institutions

Updated: 30 August 2016

The table below reflects the decision of the Minister of Advanced Education on degree programs from resident Alberta institutions reviewed by CAQC or, prior to CAQC's creation in 2004, by the Private Colleges Accreditation Board (PCAB). Publicly-funded institutions in Alberta's post-secondary system are classified according to the six-sector modelas defined by Alberta's Roles and Mandates Policy Framework. The Framework indicates the credentials offered and the intensity of research activity, as well as the geographic focus of institutions in each sector. Degree programs approved at Comprehensive Academic and Research Institutions prior to 2004 are not included in this table.

A brief history of degree program approvals in Alberta:

For Alberta private colleges between 1984 and 2004, PCAB was responsible for recommending that private college be authorized to offer degrees by Order in Council (OC) and subsequently approved their degree programs. As of 2004, all degrees offered in Alberta must be approved by the Minister under the terms of the Post-secondary Learning Act. Therefore, from 2004-2008, CAQC reviewed degree program proposals and made recommendations regarding their approval to the Minister, who then recommended Orders in Council to approve the programs and authorize the institutions to offer them. Because of subsequent changes to the Post-secondary Learning Act and the Programs of Study Regulation in 2009, an OC is currently only required to authorize a private institution to offer its first degree program. The Minister recommends to the Lieutenant Governor in Council that a private institution be authorized to grant degrees and, subsequently, the Minister approves the first and any subsequent degree programs according to the Programs of Study Regulation (91/2009).

Information on Council's monitoring role after a program is approved can be found on the Monitoring page of this website.
