In order to ensure that each program receives an individual decision, it is necessary for a shell (or template) to be created for each program in the PRS module of the Accreditation Information Management System (AIMS). 

Program shells can be linked to save the time and work it would take to copy information from one shell to another. Linking applies to programs in the same discipline (English, Elementary, etc.) that are at different levels (for example, undergraduate and post-baccalaureate), or are different in other ways—but that have identical assessments. If the assessments are not identical then individual program reports must be submitted for each program. This procedure will allow you to enter all of the information and text for these programs just one time. The system will then automatically copy the information into the other program report forms.
