Program review is the primary mechanism by which Golden West College identifies the objectives and resources needed to fulfill our educational mission. All programs (instructional and non-instructional) are expected to complete a review on the same three-year cycle. Programs that do not complete their report ARE NOT eligible to receive additional funding for one-time requests, classified positions, faculty positions, or facilities requests.

The program review report follows a basic SWOT analysis format (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats). However, it also contains sections for departments to report:

• budget expenditures and revenues,
• curriculum and course student learning outcomes activities,
• program student learning outcomes,
• progress on prior cycle objectives,​​
• new objectives for the next cycle, and
• requests for resources.
