Institutional Performance Standards (IPS)

The State Council of Higher Education (SCHEV) has assessed institutional performance for over a decade beginning with the 2005 restructuring legislation and continuing with the Virginia Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011. The Appropriation Act outlines the assessment process and lists the education-related measures and the financial and administrative standards by which the Council shall base its assessment and certification. The assessment is performed in even-numbered years. Results of past assessments are included below along with related documents.
