PROGRAM REVIEWS. Program reviews may be tailored to the specific requests of the institution for a thorough review of single or multiple issues, or a red-flag review covering some or all 13 Title IX athletics program components. Full program reviews, which are thorough reviews for all 13 Title IX athletics program components, may be reserved for current and past clients, institutions with special circumstances, or in conjunction with education services.
A thorough review of any single issue, such as the three-part test or scholarships, involves collecting information that is as detailed as a federal government investigation, identifying any potential compliance problems, and identifying alternatives to achieve compliance.

On-site visits are reserved only for institutions with special circumstances. Facilities may be reviewed via zoom.
