Academic Program Codes and FCR/CB Programs

Academic Program Codes:

All existing academic programs on the Chicago campus have been reviewed by Faculty governance and have been given a unique Academic Program Code (APC). 
Detailed information about APCs can be found at the Office of Programs and Academic Assessment.

In developing Full-Cost Recovery or Contract-Based educational program, new academic program codes must be developed.  Existing classroom programs (e.g. degree or certificates)  – when converted to an online offering – must also obtain a new academic program code.

The following information is offered as a very simplified explanation of the differences between Academic Program code types.  Again, please reference the OPAA website for more complete information.
