Quick Guide for Annual Progress Report for New Doctoral Programs

The Annual Progress Report system was designed to quickly move electronic reports up and down an institution’s structure and finally to THECB. This passworded system revolves around the institution’s chief academic officer (CAO) who specifies an institutional representative who will work on the report and the dean who will review it. The report is forwarded to THECB after the CAO’s final review.
