Anas Satti Mohamed, Ghada Mohamed Alhaj


Universities are scientific and educational institutions that aims to achieve many academic, research and community service objectives, the matter that has given it importance in the field of scientific, technological and service development. Because of the open door policy in higher education in many countries, which depends on quantitative and not qualitative expansion, it was always necessary to conduct review of the performance of universities and educational institutions in order to evaluate these institutions and ensure that they meet the quality requirements and standards.

Evaluation of academic programs quality is one of the important contexts that modern research seeks to cover, study, and address. The quality assessment of academic programs enables universities to explore strengths and weaknesses in their academic performance, and provide them with the opportunity to make adjustments and develop plans for change and development based on accurate data analysis. Which contributes to the achievement of the high educational valuable mission and the achievement of academic goals, and deals with the complexities and difficulties associated with academic programs. Moreover, it contributes to highlight the shortcomings areas that require a degree of responsibility and accountability from decision and policy makers. Hence evaluating academic programs will be   reflection of the aspirations of the universities (Ali Alqazo.2017)

Based on the Evaluation of the quality of academic programs offered by the Colleges of Applied Studies from the perspective of stakeholders (students, faculty members and employers), this study results prove that academic programs of the faculties of applied studies in Saudi public universities are of medium quality from the students, faculty staff and employers points of view.
