Recent changes to the general criteria will become effective for ABET reviews conducted in the 2019-2020 cycle. It is, therefore, important that engineering programs become aware of the changes and start revising their assessment plans to ensure a smooth transition. In addition to having a continuous improvement process that closes the loop and provides improvement that ensures a high quality education, there are many issues that programs must document and address in the self-study report. This paper will review the basic ABET Criteria that need to be fulfilled to ensure a successful accreditation visit. This will be discussed from the perspective of an institution that recently completed a successful accreditation visit and is in the process of revising its assessment processes to respond to the recent general criteria changes.
