The 2016-2017 sponsor evaluation ratings are now available online. The overall rating is based on three equally weighted components: academic performance, adherence to quality practices, and compliance with all applicable laws and rules. A copy of your overall rating will be emailed to you individually and the details of each rating are now available to view in Epicenter.
The Department has made updates to the 2017-2018 Sponsor Evaluation Instruments which include incorporating stakeholder feedback and recommendations by sponsors to further clarify the rubric based on information gathered from the sponsor evaluation adjustment review process.
