  3. If a "Show Cause" situation occurs for a program which will undergo "General Review" process for the first time in 2018-2019 cycle or in subsequent cycles, a "Not to Accredit" decision will be given for this program. No "Show Cause" evaluations will be made anymore in the 2021-2022 cycle and in the following cycles. In such a case, the accreditation of an accredited program will terminate at the end of its term.
