Illinois Programs of Study Expectations Tool

The POS Expectations Tool was developed and became a concept as continued questions came in from local areas requesting guidance on programs of study and how to proceed with the development process and work with partnerships to make those POS a reality.

As part of the Postsecondary Perkins annual plan submission, community colleges must submit a Programs of Study Inventory (Form 4) utilizing the Illinois Programs of Study Expectations Tool to ensure programs of study (POS) meet the State’s minimum expectations,(section 122(c)(1)(A)).
